What? You didn't think guys were into each other waaaaaay back in the day?
A male body, dating back to between 2900-2500 BC was found in the Czech Republic, buried in the same fashion as women of the "Corded Ware culture in the Copper Age."
Here's what archaeologist Kamila Remisova Vesinova had to say about it:
"From history and ethnology, we know that people from this period took funeral rites very seriously so it is highly unlikely that this positioning was a mistake. Far more likely is that he was a man with a different sexual orientation, homosexual or transsexual."
More from archaeologist Katerina Semradova:
"What we see here doesn't add up to traditional Corded Ware cultural norms. The grave in Terronska Street in Prague 6 is interred on its left side with the head facing the West. An oval, egg-shaped container usually associated with female burials was also found at the feet of the skeleton. None of the objects that usually accompany male burials such as weapons, stone battle axes and flint knives were found in the grave."
Pret-ty inneresting. Wonder if they'll find any other male bodies buried in a similar fashion.
Do U think the first homosexual caveman has been found? Or do U think he was buried that way for another reason?
