WATCH: Age no obstacle to love. Ancient skeletons found holding hands.

Skeletons from the 10th century BC were found holding each other's hands near the Olkhon region in southeast Russia, footage released on Friday shows.

The pair was discovered in a grave not far from Lake Baikal, presumably holding hands in a show of affection over 3,000 years ago.

SOT Dmitry Kichigin, Senior Lecturer, Department of History and Philosophy, Irkutsk National Research Technical University (Russian): "There were two skeletons which were found in an anatomic order in the burial. One of them presumably belongs to a man and remained almost intact. The second one which consists only of lower half, we think, belongs to a woman."

He added, “All that we have here are the sewed-on pieces made of elk teeth which framed the head-dress on man’s skeleton, and white jade rings which are found on his chest, and the smallest one over his eye socket.”
