Meet Otzi

Isn’t Science wonderful when it hasn’t been hijacked by Politicians? 5300+ Years Old

Take a good look at this face: It hasn’t been seen in over five millennia.

in the year 3289 BC, Otzi trekked up the Schnalstal glacier in the Italian Alps. The Neolithic guy — dubbed Otzi the Iceman, or “Frozen Fritz” — wore a coat and leggings made of sheep’s fur and moccasins made of cattle leather as he climbed, having just polished off his last meal: unleavened bread and meat.

Severely wounded by an arrow and possibly dispatched with a blow to the head by a cudgel, he died, his body froze and was mummified, and he lay in place for a very, very long time.

  1. I love anything having to do with archaeology, Jaded, and am always delighted when you bring something good like this. As the pic was loading of “Otzi”, I thought that his hair and eyes were a bit like that toad in Iran, Ahmadinejad, until we got to the smile.

    Otzi is eminently nicer. Saner, too.
