Spoon skeleton: Who were these 3,000-year-old ‘Romeo and Juliet’?

More than 3,000 years ago, a couple at the Bible site in Bethsaida, in Israel, buried side by side in a spoon position, with the man ‘s arm over the woman’ s body, and archaeologists who found the remains now name the couple “Romeo and Juliet.” ”

Archaeologists believe the people died at the same time, although they are not sure what killed the couple, said Rami Arav, project leader of Bethsaida and professor of religious studies at the University of Nebraska Omaha.
