many more finds.

More scientific science fiction. See good things come out of global warming cooling climate change. We would have never known why people back than took their clothes off. Do they actually pay these people to research what has been discovered year ago?

"fetid feces face flip flopper fiend" doesn't like research...... because it has no brain(like 'earthling has no brain') to process that data & doesn't want people who are smarter than it, to get any further ahead of it.

It's kind of silly to propose a reason someone took off their tunic 1700 years ago, but the fact that it was found shows that the glacier was much smaller in the past than in our recent experience.

If the glacier was smaller, were the temperatures warmer? Would appear that way.

The temperatures 1700 years ago are the same as today?

First of all, the temperatures 1700 years ago were exactly the same, exactly, as they are today, day to day, hour by hour, minute to minute. Maybe the tunics have changed -- I really don't know -- but temperatures haven't. Have the types of, say, cars changed? Because if they have, that will tell us so much about ourselves and our world. What about other types of durable goods, like refrigerators and air-hockey tables and electric chairs? Maybe archaeologists ought to look for that sort of crap under the glaciers (if they can find any). Like a fourth century Buick Oslo -- there's a car from the old school. Or a Pontiac Plague.
