Corpses Found Holding Hands After 700 Years

Til death do them part? Nope, not even then.

Archeologists from the University of Leicester in the UK were touched when they uncovered the remains of a man and a woman who look like they couldn't get enough of each other.

They've clearly seen better days, but archeologists were still happy to see this couple while excavating a 14th century pilgrimage site at the Chapel of St. Morrell in Hallaton. They say the remains are a man and a woman of similar age who look like they're still inseparable after 700 years. Archeologists say they've uncovered similar remains of couples who were buried together, but they say the whole site is still a mystery.

They know the ground was used as a "special" place for people for about 2,000 years, but they're not sure why.

The chapel was named after a Bishop from France who later became a saint and research suggests that people came to the chapel in droves looking for cures. Maybe that cure didn't work out so well for this pair, but at least they had each other.
