In an extraordinary archeological find, two embracing skeletons were unearthed recently in Italy. “The pair, almost certainly a man and a woman, are thought to have died young as their teeth were mostly intact, said chief archaeologist Elena Menotti.” Judging by the age of the couple, perhaps it’s Adam and Eve? Seems unlikely they would have made it all the way to Italy, but who knows?

“It’s an extraordinary case,” said Ms Menotti. “There has not been a double burial found in the Neolithic period, much less two people hugging – and they really are hugging,” she told Reuters news agency.
