Mantua, Italy, February 7, 2007Romeo and Juliet, eat your hearts out. A pair of human skeletons locked in embrace was unearthed on February 6 at a construction site in Italy.

The remains, seen here in a photo provided by the Archaeological Society SAP on February 7, are believed to be of a man and a woman buried 5,000 to 6,000 years ago. The find has sparked theories of a love story far more ancient than Shakespeare's classic tragedy.
