Romeo and Juliet of Bronze Age

Romeo and Juliet of Bronze Age

Archeologists have found an unusual grave near the town of Krasny Sulin in the Rostov Region.

      It keeps skeletons of two people embracing each other with both their arms and legs. Remains of a child were found in a separate grave a few meters away. The bones are about 4 thousand years old.

      “I have never seen anything like this before. Usually in couple or triple graves they arranged a woman’s body at the back of the man, and the child’s body was placed behind the woman, but never facing and embracing each other. These are Romeo and Juliette of the Bronze Age”, the archeologist Igor Gudimenko says.

      Anthropologists will more precisely establish the age and sex of the buried people.
