Did Scientists Find a Gay Caveman?

That’s what archaeologist Kamila Remisova Vesinova claimed. Her team has found evidence of a male skeleton buried in a way normally reserved only for women of the Corded Ware culture in the Copper Age:

The skeleton was found in a Prague suburb in the Czech Republic with its head pointing eastwards and surrounded by domestic jugs, rituals only previously seen in female graves.

“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,” said lead archaeologist Kamila Remisova Vesinova.

“Far more likely is that he was a man with a different sexual orientation, homosexual or transsexual,” she added.
