Otzi, the Ice Man

16 Sep
In class today, we learned about Otzi, the Ice Man, who was discovered by hikers in the Alps in 1991.  Artifacts that were discovered with his body are amazing, and they have helped historians learn more about the life of early humans.  Click HERE to look at photos of some of these artifacts and click HERE to see a slideshow about this amazing discovery.  Otzi is at the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Italy. You can find more information using the links at the museum. Here are some other articles:

    I really found this interesting because the body was preserved so well. It was cool and disgusting at the same time. But if the body was found between Italy and another country, why is the body in Italy? It was really amazing that he was able to make a copper axe that was really advanced for his time. Now I have something that can scare my sister!

      At the moment, copper weapons are way outdated so you may not succeed. Anyway, it must be very frustrating to be an Archaeologist. You’ve believed something for decades and you have based all your information based on that, and then suddenly you find one discovery of an ax blade and you have to start all your calculations all over again. How many times do they have to rethink every discovery?

      I also wonder how does Ötzi lived. And I also wonder what is their equipment.
