Ice man

Todd is right, you are an idiot. Not just fiscally, or is it frugally? Have you ever heard the term anecdotal evidence? Do you understand how pointless and redundant that is?

Ice man

After an investigation, it was revealed that the mummified man lived sometime between and BC. The iceman is estimated to have been around 5 ft 5 in in height and about lb. He was around 45 years at the time of his death, making him old by the standards of the time. Otzi lived at the beginning of the copper age in Europe, so his discovery, along with the artifacts present on his body offer an interesting glimpse into the tools and equipment available to the traveler during that time.

The Axe The first tool he had with him was certainly the most valuable at the time. It was a copper axe. The axe blade was 3.

The handle was 24 in long. The blade was attached using birch tar and string, and more than half of the blade was inserted within the handle. The blade was made of almost pure copper and was worked using cold-hammering after casting. The Knife Another tool he had with him was a small flint knife.

The knife measured 5. The handle was made of ash, and the sheath of woven lime wood bast. A string was attached to the back of the knife.

It consisted of a piece of lime tree branch, which was pointed on one side. On the pointed side a hole was drilled, into which a bone plug stag antler was inserted with which the knapping was done. The Arrows A quiver of arrows was also discovered alongside Otzi.

It was made of leather, and held 14 arrows made of viburnum sapwood. Two of the arrows were completed. They had flint tips, held with birch tar and bindings.

The other 12 arrows were unfinished. In the quiver several pieces of antler were also discovered. Their use is still debated. The Bow Otzi was also carrying an unfinished yew bow. The stave was 72 in in length.

As I am unfamiliar with bow making, I can not tell you what size bow would customarily be made from such a size stave. The Birch Bark Containers Two birch bark containers were also discovered, possibly used to carry some other items.

They were about 5. They were stitched together using tree fiber. Tests have shown that one of them contained maple leaves as well as spruce needles and charcoal. It is possible that this was a method for carrying an amber from the last camp site. The Backpack The backpack was very deteriorated at the time of discovery, but it appears to have had a frame consisting of a bent hazel branch about 6.

The pack was probably about 3 ft in length. The Net A net was also discovered, made of tree bast.The Ice Man: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer [Philip Carlo] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Philip Carlo's The Ice Man spent over six weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List.
