    the article mentioned his voice sounded like a chain smoker's voice. go me to wondering if he may have inhaled a whole lot of wood fire smoke over the decades he was alive, due to the climate, altitude etc being cold and cooking over open fires, and possibly using smoke lodges for healing etc. just random thoughts....anyway his recreated /guessed voice is interesting at minimum.

      Definitely. Inhaling so much smoke in confined spaces is almost a guarantee for complications to the air ways. Pneumonia for example was one of the main causes of death for millennia of recorded history, one of the main reasons why "old age" was considered 40-ish until quite recently. Still is a big factor in many parts of Africa and Asia for child mortality.

      • Due to some idiot messing up the equipment that controls the water level in the river Meuse by ploughing his boat right into it the remains of a Roman pier have been exposed in Cuijk, the Netherlands. Cuijk is close to Nijmegen, a city called Noviomagus during Roman times and for some time housed a Roman legion, Legio X Gemina. Whether this pier was used to supply Roman troops or used for commerce isn't known.
