The remains were found positioned in an ‘eternal love lock’ were discovered in June 2020.

The grave, one of 600 other graves in a cemetery, was dug up for a construction project in the Shanxi province city of Datong, reported South China Morning Post.

Researchers say that the couple lived during the Northern Wei dynasty (AD 386-534), in today’s north and central China.

A study published in 2020, by the researchers in the International Journal of Osteoarcheology, said, “The skeletons of a man and a woman were found placed in loving embrace posture with a ring on the left-hand ring finger of the female, displaying the desire for the eternal love of the couple, and the respect to their love by people who buried them as well.”

It was revealed that the man was aged between 29 and 35 at the time of death. He was 5”4’ and had an unhealed infection fracture in his right arm, a ring finger was also missing on his right hand.

It is believed that she was fairly healthy and she had a ring on her left hand. The female was around 5”2’ and aged 35-40 years at the time of her death.
