Romance, Marriage and Dating Body Language Secret # 424:
'Til Death Do Us Part....Fossilized Love

Here's some Halloween-esque Body Language:

These two skeletons of a man and woman were found about 25 miles South of Verona, Italy - the town of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet". Archaeologists stated that they were also young when they died - as they had all of their teeth intact. They date from about five to six thousand years ago - the late Neolithic Period. Double burials were extremely unusual during this time. The finding is reminiscent of poses from the ruins of Pompeii - because they show us behavior and even emotion frozen in time. Fossils of Love, and dead for eons - these lovers still demonstrate nonverbal communication to us. They are looking into each others' eyes, embracing, and the skeleton on the left is even caressing the face of their lover.
