It can't get more heartbreaking than this – a mother cradling her baby in what experts are saying is a mass grave that's about 4,800 years old. The human fossil was unearthed in Taiwan and is part of 48 other sets of remains that prove that there already was a community of humans in the area in and near Taichung at that time.

It is not every day that they stumble upon a find like this, especially if one thinks how the mother didn't want to let go of her child at a certain point when death was inevitable. more >>
