Radiocarbon dating has established that the Haraldskær woman, found in a peat bog in Jutland, Denmark, died around 490 B.C. The Kennewick man, found on a bank of the Columbia River, died before 7,300 B.C. The Eve of Naharon, found in an underwater cave near Tulum, Mexico, died about 11,600 B.C. This is not the kind of immortality that I hope to achieve.
