Nụ hôn có từ bao giờ?

nụ hôn được ghi lại sớm nhất có niên đại ít nhất 4.500 năm ở Lưỡng Hà

When was the first kiss? Recent papers have suggested that romantic or sexual kissing began 3,500 years ago in what is now India. But a new review paper in the journal Science says that this style of kissing is also mentioned in clay tablets (viên đất sét) from Mesopotamia that predate (lùi về trước) the Indian texts by about a thousand years.

Danish husband and wife researchers Troels Pank Arboll and Sophie Lund Rasmussen stress that “the behavior did not emerge abruptly (xuất hiện đột ngột) or in a specific society, but appears to have been practiced in multiple ancient cultures” (nền văn hóa cổ xưa) including Egypt.

Arboll had little trouble (rắc rối) finding accounts of kissing from Mesopotamia written in both the Sumerian and Akkadian languages. He and Rasmussen noted too a calcite sculpture (điêu khắc canxit) in the British Museum called the “Ain Sakhri Lovers,” which was found in caves near Bethlehem and is estimated to be about 11,000 years old.

The human fascination with kissing history comes as no surprise to Laura Weyrich, an associate professor of anthropology (phó giáo sư nhân chủng học) at Pennsylvania State University who co-authored one of the studies cited by the Danish researchers. Her paper, published in Nature in 2017, examined DNA from the dental plaque of Neanderthals and used it to infer information on their behavior, diet and disease.

There is some debate among researchers about whether kissing began in one place and spread (lan tỏa) or had “numerous independent origins,” as Arboll and Rasmussen write.
