Three thumbs up

I have been obsessed with Otzi. I really enjoyed the fictional telling of this tale!

Old Road Rider ,

Shameful historical Portrayal.

I give one star for performance drama.
Regardless, this corruption of the historical record is shameful.
A headman like Otzi would have immediately removed the thieving murderers head. Your assumption that Otzi was old and incapable of battle is preposterous. Otzi witnessed the murder of the northerner and was poised to execute Neolithic justice upon an unworthy tribal member.

Your portrayal of a Neolithic warrior chief as a submissive male cannot be imagined on any intellectual or historical level. This period is marked by leaders of Gilgamesh heroism.
No quarter was given for such insults.

Subversion of Humanities Story is as Capital as that I’ve the covetous thief.

Wootsy1 ,

TREMENDOUS!

I love historical fiction. It’s both entertaining and educational. I always go back and learn about the subject upon which the fictional story is based and get so much more out of the story.
I’m so glad I found this through the Fever Dreams podcast. I was sucked into its gravitational pull from the first tribal guttural chant.
The voice acting, sound design and writing are superb.
Definitely worth a listen.
