Skeletal Romeo and Juliet

5000 years ago makes it a little too early, and they never did make it to Mantua, but this article about two skeletons found locked in an embrace is loaded with enough Romeo and Juliet references to make it worth a link.  An outstanding archaeological find, to be sure, though the whole “wife was probably sacrificed to keep the dead husband company” thing kinda puts a morbid spin on the romantic aspect.
