The so-called Lovers of Valdaro, also dubbed as the “Valdaro Lovers,” are a pair of human skeletons dating back 6,000 years discovered by archaeologists at a Neolithic tomb in S.Giorgio near Mantova, Italy, in 2007. The two skeletons appear to have died or were interred facing each other with arms around each other, thus reminiscent of a “lovers’ embrace”. Archaeologist Elena Maria Menotti led the excavation. Scientists believe that the pair is a man and woman no older than 20 years old and approximately 5’2” in height. They were removed from the ground intact and sent to Musei Civici in Como where they are undergoing analysis.
