Listen to this: "Archaeologists have unearthed two skeletons from the Neolithic period locked in a tender embrace and buried outside Mantua. The site is just 25 miles south of Verona, the romantic city where Shakespeare set the star-crossed tale of "Romeo and Juliet." "
How loaded is that?
Wait: "The find has "more of an emotional than a scientific value." But it does highlight how the relationship people have with each other and with death has not changed much."
Romeo and Juliet? Emotion not science.
Writers, listen up: You find two bodies, they appear to be hugging, they are prehistoric, they coincidentally lie near the vicinity of the setting of a romantic tale - Your job is to be a forensic scientist.
Two skeletons. They face each other. Italy.
Go to it.
