"Two skeletons about 5000-6000 years old have been found in Italy. They’re unquestionably hugging, making this the first of its kind. Pretty special.
“It’s an extraordinary case,” said Ms Menotti. “There has not been a double burial found in the Neolithic period, much less two people hugging - and they really are hugging,” she told Reuters news agency.
Flint tools, including arrowheads and a knife, were also found alongside the couple."
