Discovered by archaeologists in a tomb in San Giorgio near Mantua, Italy. The couple have been holding one another for 6,000 years.
The two skeletons – speculations say a male and female no older than 20 years old at death and approximately 1.57 m (5 ft 2 in) in height – appear to have died or were interred facing each other with arms around each other, thus reminiscent of a “lovers’ embrace”.
In the following video, Drs. Page Selinsky and Janet Monge tell us the history of the Penn Museum excavations in Hasanlu, Iran, where some other two male skeletons where discovered in an affectionate position, sparking endless questions.
