USask find oldest set of twins - which died during birth

An exciting find, but with undeniably sad overtones.

She said the bones tell the sad story of a woman who partially delivered one twin in a breech position, which obstructed the birth of the second child.

”It’s virtually impossible to say for sure there were twins in the past,” said Lieverse, who added that while archeologists have found babies buried together in the same grave, it doesn’t necessarily prove the existence of twins.
