Lovers of Modena

Lovers of Modena skeletons holding hands were both men:

Some of the suggestions for the link between the two skeletons are that they are siblings, cousins or soldiers who died together in battle, study author Federico Lugli told Italy's Rai news site (in Italian).

Or maybe that they were "just roommates"? Really, in 2019 we can't imagine that maybe homosexuality isn't a modern invention?

And maybe this is only making news because it's being sensationalized.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
