A pair of ancient skeletons, known as the “Lovers of Modena” because they were buried holding hands, were both men, scientists say. The skeletons made headlines in 2009 when they were uncovered in an Italian cemetery. At the time, they were widely assumed to be a man and a woman but their sex couldn’t be determined because they were badly preserved. Researchers disproved that assumption by testing proteins in the tooth enamel and finding, in both cases, a peptide present only in men. “They could be brothers, cousins, friends,” said one researcher. “They could even be lovers. They are all equally likely, I think.” (📸: Handout/University of Bologna/EPA/Shutterstock)
