This photo has been circulating wildly of late, purporting to show a couple "that have been holding hands for 700 years" (according to the University of Leicester's press release).
The dig blog is a bit less, erm, truth-stretchy, labeling them as "a man and women [sic] buried side by side with their arms crossed together." Which is good because, well, where are their hands?
Holding hands is a nice story. And it could be true. Buuuuut... one corpse's arm could have just been thrown on top of another corpse's arm. I'd really want to figure out where the hands are (?) and what the precise stratigraphy is first.
