Two people buried hand in hand have shared a grave for 700 years, eternally entombed side by side. Since their discovery, researchers have believed the couple to be man and woman, but a new analysis suggests that the duo is, in fact, two biological males, spurring more questions than answers.Nicknamed the Lovers of Modena , the couple was first discovered in 2009 when archaeologists were excavating the Italian City of Modena. Poor preservation of the bones made it difficult to identify the sex of their owners at the time, but typical burial practices between the 4th and 6th centuries suggest that it was likely a man and woman intentionally buried together in a symbolic gesture of their eternal love.

To protect Chinese emperor Qin Shihuang in the afterlife, thousands of clay soldiers joined him underground some 2200 years ago. The discovery of this Terracotta Army in the 1970s was a great gift to archaeologists and fans of ;ancient lost technology; stories. The trope, which has some basis in fact, suggests that our ancestors were privy to some knowledge or technology that would still be useful, but has since been lost to the ages.When researchers discovered that this buried, ancient army of clay had remarkably preserved weapons, it was reasonable to wonder if the craftspeople at the time had treated them to avoid rust somehow. Chemical analyses showed that the arms contained trace amounts of the element chromium an ingredient in stainless steel and so for decades the thinking has been that Qin s people had developed some cool kind of chromium based anti rust coating to put on their weapons.

Archaeologists in Peru have uncovered what may have been the world s largest mass child sacrifice, National Geographic reports in an exclusive story. Residents of Huanchaco first noticed human bones in 2011, in coastal dunes near the capital of the former Chim empire. Over the next 5 years, archaeologists supported by grants from the National Geographic Society uncovered the remains of more than 140 children aged 5 to 14, as well as 200 young llamas, dating from about 1450 C.E. The llamas and the children had cuts to the breastbone and dislocated ribs suggesting that their hearts may have been removed. The scientists say the children were likely victims of a ritualistic killing in response to extreme weather that devastated Chim s agricultural infrastructure.

The group of experts, which comprise a geologist, archaeologists, Sanskrit scholars and two bureaucrats, met in the first week of January 2017 in New Delhi, according to the Reuters report. According to the minutes of the meeting, which the news agency said it accessed, the panel aims to use archaeological data and DNA evidence to prove that Hindus descended from the earliest inhabitants of India and that Hindu scriptures were history, not mythology. I have been asked to present a report that will help the government rewrite certain aspects of ancient history, Reuters quoted the committee s chairperson, KN Dikshit, as saying. Sikshit said it was essential to establish a correlation between ancient Hindu scriptures and evidence that Indian civilisation is several thousands of years old. The current view is that people from Central Asia arrived in India 3,000 to 4,000 years ago.
