    Skeletons Found ‘Holding Hands’ After 700 Years

A team of archaeologists from the University of Leicester Archaeological Services (ULAS) are working with volunteers on a four-year excavation project at the site, which overlooks the small village of Hallaton. Vicki Score, ULAS project manager, says the skeletons were placed together in this position, as there was enough room in the grave to have them buried apart. Aside from […]

    FAYETTEVILLE, Arkansas — Does the word “virginity” evoke discussions of sexuality or religious belief?

Eighth-grader Chloe Rubiano of Ramay Junior High said she got the tee at a Christian festival last year; on the back, it continues its abstinence message: “I’m loving my Husband and I haven’t even Married […]

They were little blue dots trapped in the tiny […]

    EDINBURGH, Scotland — Politicians are making their final pleas to Scottish voters Wednesday, the last day of campaigning before they head to the polls to vote on independence.
