(CNN) -- Archaeologists with the University of Leicester in England have uncovered a pair of skeletons that have been holding hands for the last 700 years.

They're among 11-skeletons found in the small village of Hallaton.

The skeletons were placed together in the position, as there was enough room in the grave to have them buried apart.

It is also the same site where archaeologists found the remains of King Richard III.
