Breathtaking Pictures Of The Valdaro Lovers, A Pair Of Skeletons That Had Been Locked For 6,000 Years

The Valdaro Lovers are two skeletons who have been locked in an eternal embrace for 6,000 years. The embracing skeletons were found in 2007, at a Neolithic tomb next to the village of Valdaro in Mantua, Italy.

According to scientists, the partners were probably no older than 20 years old when they died and were around 5’2″ (157 cm) in height. An osteological examination showed that there was no evidence of violent death. As many historians believe, the couple died that way because of the flints tools that were discovered with them. The male skeleton was found having a flint arrowhead beside his neck, while the female had a long stone blade along her thigh as well as two flint knives under her pelvis.

A possible explanation is that the flint tools were buried as grave goods together with the lovers. It's fascinating that their bodies were positioned that way after they died. They were discovered in a necropolis, so they didn't die that way by accident, rather, it is claimed that they were positioned that way.

It's even more impressive that, during the Neolithic period, double burials were really uncommon which makes their position unique. The embracing skeletons are the only situation of a double burial in Northern Italy. When they were discovered, the media published pictures of them, causing great excitement across the globe.

Since the skeletons were discovered just ten years ago, it is extremely challenging to define anything about them so quickly. It's a long process where every bone will have to be examined thoroughly. However, as Elena Maria Menotti, the archaeologist who led the excavation, decided, the couple shouldn't be separated, but they should be moved and preserved as they were discovered. So, the excavation team dug up the block of the earth in which they were found and put them in a wooden box.

The skeletons were sent to the Musei Civici in Como. In September 2011, the Valdaro Lovers were finally displayed in public at the Mantua’s Archaeological Museum.

As explained by professor Silvia Bangoli, the president of the association “Lovers in Mantua”, approximately €250,000 should be enough for the skeletons to have an exhibition center of their own. Also, Bangoli said that €200,000 more could be used for a multimedia space where the world could hear the story of the embracing skeletons. The association “Lovers of Mantua”, is still searching for a home for the ancient lovers where they can be displayed permanently.

  1. This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony. I visited a forum here on the internet on the 8TH OF APRIL 2017, And I saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful great spell caster called DR Omoluyi on the forum. I never believed it, because I've never heard nor learnt anything about magic before. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about spells, not until i visited ( [email protected]l.com ) and behold he did it for me and restored my marriage of 6 years back to me and brought my spouse back to me within 12 to 16 hours just as I have read on the forum.. I was truly astonished and shocked when my husband knelt down begging me for forgiveness to accept him back. I am really short of expressions, and I don't know how much to convey my appreciation to you DR Omoluyi, you are a God sent to me and my entire family. Visit him today via Email and Website on ( [email protected] ) or [ http://www.doctorokpamenspells.com ]. Am Lori Dante by name.
