700-YEAR-OLD SKELETONS SHOW
COUPLE HOLDING HANDS
We all dream of finding that one true love. Not only did this couple find their true love, they took it to the whole new level. Researchers and archaeologists teamed up to unearth a story that is stirring up quite a buzz. They found something buried next to an ancient church in England and they are incredibly excited about the discovery.
Recently a team of archaeologists from the University of Leicester Archaeological Services (ULAS) began working on a 4 year project that included the excavation of whatever they found. This project was done in a small village in England called Hallaton.
What they found startled them! This couple was found in a chapel buried for 700 years. But if you look closely, their arms and wrapped around each other and they are holding hands.
Because there are no notes showing why this couple is buried here, it’s said that they may have been refused burial in the main church because they were possibly criminals.
There were 9 other bodies found along with this couple. Many of them had injuries that may lead to some conclusions about their death. One appeared to have been killed by being hit on the head with a sharp object, similar to an axe.
Clancy's comment: Amazing, eh? Mm ... sounds like they had a violent death.
