Archeologists In Leicester Have Found A Couple Who've Been Holding Hands For 700 Years

"All that will survive of us is love."

These remains of a man and a woman were found at the Chapel of St Morrell, a 14th-century pilgrimage site in Hallaton, by archeologists from the University of Leicester.

The university's Vicki Score told MailOnline: "We've seen similar skeletons before from Leicester where a couple have been buried together."

The pair are believed to be of a similar age.

Score told the paper: "It shows this ground has been used as a special sort of place by people for at least 2,000 years."

However, she also said there's a gap in the archeologists' knowledge of what happened between the Roman and medieval periods.

Right, now let's all read the most beautiful poem Philip Larkin ever wrote.
