This Is What She Means…

…When she says, “Forever”.

Just in time for Valentine’s day, news from Italy that a young couple, buried together in the Neolithic period between five and six thousand years ago, will be examined together, rather than being separated. They were discovered not far from Verona, the setting for Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”. Some traditions are lasting ones, it seems.

I’m glad that they are taking care to preserve them as they were. Although it’s impossible to determine the exact nature of their relationship, their embrace continues after thousands of years. It’s a nice thought, at least, and we can use more of those.

What scientist would want to interrupt?
