Archaeologists Find “Lovers” Buried in Roman Cemetery

The burial remains of a man and a woman from Roman times (more than 1,500 years ago) have been uncovered by archaeologists in Central Italy. The find has inspired romantics and archaeologists alike. The couple was buried holding hands and apparently looking towards one another:

“We believe that they were originally buried with their faces staring into each other.”

The find suggests that relationships between couples was considered an important element not only in life (where ‘love-matches’ were a rare event), but also in the after-life.

“Whoever buried these people likely felt that communicating their relationship was just as important in death as it was in life.”

The remains will be sent to the University of Bologna for further study. To learn more about this find, see the article in Discovery News.
