Gay Caveman Found in Prague? Archaeologists Find Gay Caveman?
Archaeologists Have Found What Could Be the Oldest Known Homosexual Caveman
A skeleton was found in a Prague suburb, and archaeologists believe it may be the world's oldest known gay caveman.
The skeleton was found with its head pointing eastwards, and surrounded by domestic jugs, which was usually only found 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.
However, some experts have said that there is no way this is an example of a gay caveman.
Not only is "gay" an oversimplification, "caveman" is flat-out inaccurate, said John Hawks, a paleoanthropologist at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
"Corded-Ware burials are not 'caveman' in age," Hawks told LiveScience. "We're talking about pre-Bronze Age farmers."
There is still some doubt that doubt as to whether the skeleton found is even male, so at this point it's hard to say if this caveman is a reality, but it's an interesting theory.
