An Ancient Love Story

Over 3800 years ago, a young male, possibly born in Skåne [in Southern Sweden], made a journey of over 900 kilometers south, to Wroclaw in Poland. He died violently in Wroclaw, killed by Úněticean farmers, possibly due to romance with two local females, who were murdered together with him. This "Bronze Age love story", with no happy end today is the first case of Swedish-Polish contacts in history ever.
From here quoting archaeologist Dalia Pokutta's thesis.
