About 1,500 years ago, a couple — a male and female — were buried together in a loving embrace. When archaeologists found their remains, their embrace was still intact despite the passage of time. 

"This is the first [couple] found in a loving embrace, as such, anywhere anytime in China," study lead researcher Qian Wang, an associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the Texas A&M College of Dentistry, told Live Science in an email.

The man was between 29-35 years old and had a few injuries, including a broken arm and missing finger on his right hand. The woman was between 35-40 years old and had a few cavities but no apparent injuries. Researchers speculate that after the man died the woman may have killed herself to make it easier to be buried in the loving embrace.
