The 2800 Year Old Kiss

Written by: George Chittenden : 06 Oct 2019

This interesting photo was taken in in Iran in 1972 and is known as the 2800-year-old kiss. The two human skeletons were unearthed at the Teppe Hasanlu archaeological site, in the Solduz Valley in Iran by a team from the University of Pennsylvania. The image suggests the pair were embracing each other at the moment of their death. Dental evidence suggests that the skeleton on the right, lying on his back, belonged to a young adult male, between 19-22 years old.

Interestingly the skeleton on the left has both male and female Physical characteristics, which made determining the sex impossible. The pelvis for example has mixed features like a moderately wide sciatic notch, but the pubic area of the pelvis is more male in form. It’s likely that these skeletons are both male, but we’ll probably never know for sure. The pair were found in a bin-like structure with no other objects except a stone slab under the head of one skeleton. They both died around 800 B.C.
