Gay caveman unearthed/outed by archaeologists

275x250.jpgArchaeologists believe they may have discovered the world's oldest known homosexual caveman.

Experts say the 5,000-year-old remains were found in a Prague suburb in the Czech Republic, buried a way normally reserved for women.

Because he was buried on his left side and his grave was surrounded by domestic jugs, archaeologists think he would have been homosexual or transsexual.

Corded Ware culture - which began in the late Stone Age - would have seen all men buried lying on their right side with their heads pointing towards the west and surrounded by weapons.

The team who unearthed/outed the gay caveman say that because of the seriousness with which funeral rites were treated it's unlikely his positioning was a mistake.
During a press conference, archeologist Katerina Semradova said examples had previously been found including a female warrior who was buried as a man.

"But this later discovery was neither of those, leading us to believe the man was probably homosexual or transsexual." she added.
