Medieval remains of couple holding hands found in Romania

Adrian Rusu, from the Cluj-Napoca Institute of Archaeology and History of Art, said: “It is a mystery – and rare for such burials at that time.

“We can see that the man had suffered a severe injury that left him with a broken hip from which he probably died.

“Because of the fact that the young woman obviously died at the same time and was presumably healthy we are speculating that she possibly died of a broken heart at the loss of her partner.”
