Dying by Crucifixion

There is a paper published in the Royal Society of Medicine. Here is the article in pdf format.

Their conclusion:

Our conclusion is that, at present, there is insufficient evidence to safely state exactly how people did die from crucifixion in Roman times. It is quite likely that different individuals died from different physiological causes, and we would expect that the orientation in which they were crucified would be crucial in this respect.

Dear Jesus!
I was just reading Weisell, about a little Jewish boy being hung by the Nazis, it took him a long time to die, the youthful body resists, the older men died quicker.

God, hanging there, bad.
It's not relevant.
