6,000 Year Old Lovers

“Lovers in Mantua” are two 6,000 year old skeletons–a young man and a woman from the Neolithic era–who must have cared for each other very deeply. In 2007, their skeletons were found in this embrace near Mantua, Italy, the site of another young love drama: the exile of Romeo and where he found out that his true love Juliet was dead.
