Ötzi the Iceman -- our favourite Copper Age corpsicle -- is the gift that keeps on giving. A recent analysis of the metal found in the Neolithic hunter's copper axe suggests a point of origin in Southern Tuscany, which is far from where Ötzi's frozen body was found. This suggests a long-distance trade route might have existed between central Italy and the Alps some 5300 years ago.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
