A split off from the "If you could go back in time..." thread, as I didn't want to be guilty of hijacking that to a new topic, as his was about killing Hitler and living Red Alert IRL. If you could go back in time and do any one thing, what would it be? I have no interest in toppling mighty empires, and the idea of preventing WW2 or whatever bores me, but I do know what I want to do -- Observe the last moments of Otzi's death. Otzi is a frozen mummy from the Alps. Sometime in the chalcolithic, he caught an arrow in the back and it severed an artery. He died quickly. He died with numerous small wounds on his hands, as if he had been fighting in close order. He had a number of items with him when he was shot, including a copper axe, which at the time was a prestige item. There are numerous theories I will explore in a different thread, but I have always wondered -- was it ritual sacrifice? Execution? Murder? An accident? Assisted suicide? Did he fall in battle? So many things...so few answers... M.
