    Saddest thing ever... The story of The Lovers of Valdaro brings tears to my eyes. Believed to be no older than twenty years of age when death occurred. Over 6,000 years old. Locked in an eternal embrace. Tragically, their story is unknown. Ironically, they were found in the city of Mantua, Italy. The city Shakespeare chose to set the story of Romeo & Juliet.

    Lovers of Valdaro The so-called Lovers of Valdaro, also dubbed as the "Valdaro Lovers," are a pair of human skeletons discovered by archaeologists at a Neolithic tomb in S.Giorgio near Mantova, Italy, in 2007. The two skeletons appear to have died or were interred facing each other with arms around each other, thus reminiscent of a "lovers' embrace". [Source: Wikipedia] - Skulls

    True Love. Amazing. {In 2007, archaelogists unearthed two skeletons from the Neolithic period locked in an eternal embrace and buried outside Mantua, Italy, just 25 miles south of Verona: the city where Shakespeare set the star-crossed tale of Romeo and Juliet. They are thought to have died young because they both had all their teeth intact. But beyond that, the skeletons are a mystery.}
