He sounds like a real hunk of a dude – but he’s a bit old for my tastes. 
Keep your eye trained on this 6,500-year-old anyway, though, because he hails from Iraq’s last Great Goddess civilization, the Ubaidian.

He’s a rare find – complete skeletons from these ancient and peaceful old goddess days are scarce as hen’s teeth. 

Sounds like this guy was a looker, too:

“The body is believed to be that of a well-muscled man at least 50 who stood 5 feet, 9 inches tall, according to Monge. She hopes a skeletal analysis, possibly including a CT scan, will reveal more about his diet, stresses, diseases and ancestral origins....” [Go HERE to read more.]
Anyway, as we discover more about this dude, we'll discover more too about how good Iraq had it before ancient war-god monsters moved in and crunched them for lunch. 

BTW:  for a complete rundown on the showdown between the Ubaidians and the ancient war-god monsters, get your hands on a copy of Switching to Goddess: Humanity's Ticket to the Future.  It is sold in most online bookstores near you.
