Oetzi the IcemanOetzi the Iceman is the modern nickname of a well-preserved natural mummy of a man fromabout 3300 BC. The mummy was found in 1991 in a glacier of the Otztal Alps, near theborder between Austria and Italy. Oetzi was named after the valley ofhis discovery. He rivals the Egyptian "Ginger" as the oldest knownhuman mummy, and he has offered a unique view of the habits ofCopper Age Europeans.Oetzi was found by two German tourists on September 19, 1991. Thebody was at first thought to be a modern corpse, like several otherswhich had recently been found in the area. It was roughly recovered bythe Austrian authorities and taken to Innsbruck, where its true age was finally discovered. It isnow being displayed at the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bozen-Bolzano, Italy.The body has been extensively examined, measured, x-rayed, and dated. Tissues andstomach contents were examined microscopically. Scientists believe that at the time of hisdeath, Oetzi was a 30-to-45-year old man, approximately 160 cm (53") tall. Analysis of pollenand dust grains on his clothing, and analysis of Oetzi’s teeth enamel show that his childhoodwas spent near the present village of Feldthurns, north of Bolzano. He later went to live invalleys about 50 km further north.The Iceman had 57 tattoos. Some were located on or near acupuncture points that are usedtoday to treat symptoms of digestive problems and osteoarthritis. Interestingly, scientists havefound that Oetzi suffered from digestive problems and osteoarthritis. Some scientists believethat these tattoos indicate an early type of acupuncture. Oetzi’s clothes include a cloak, vest,and shoes. They were quite sophisticated. The cloak was woven from grass, and the vestwas made of leather.The shoes were waterproof and wide. They seemed to be designed for walking across thesnow; they were constructed of bearskin, deer hide, and tree bark. Soft grass was wrappedaround the foot and also placed in the shoe. The grass functioned like warm socks. Recently,the shoes were reproduced by experts. They are of such excellent quality, that there areplans for them to be made commercially.Other items found with the Iceman include a copperaxe, flint knife, and a bow and quiver of arrows.Additionally, Oetzi carried two species of mushrooms. One of these mushrooms is known tohave antibacterial properties, and was likely used for medical purposes. Researchers believeOetzi may have been involved in a fight. Injuries from the fight may have killed him. A DNAanalysis revealed traces of blood from four other people on his gear: one from his knife, twofrom the same arrowhead, and a fourth from his coat. A CAT scan revealed that an arrowhead was stuck in Oetzi’s shoulder when he died. Thearrow shaft had been removed, but the arrowhead had been left inside his body. He also hadbruises and cuts on his hands, wrists, and chest. From such evidence, and an examination ofhis weapons, molecular biologist Thomas Loy from the University of Queensland believes thatOetzi and his companions were hunters who fought with a rival group. At some point, he may
have carried (or been carried by) a companion. He may have been weakened by blood loss.As a result, Oetzi apparently put down his equipment neatly against a rock, lay down, anddied.His body was covered by thousands of years of ice and snow until his recent discovery.Pieces of his clothing, his hair, his skin, and his personal possessions were well-preservedbecause of the cold temperatures.
