Ötzi - An Archaeological Detective Story

Ötzi - Ein Archäologie-Krimi

It was a bright autumn day on 19th September 1991 when Mr & Mrs Simon discovered a body on the Similaun glacier. It wasn't an isolated case that year. Storms had brought the finest Saharan sand to the Alps - and this, combined with the summer sun, caused the glaciers to begin to melt. In Tyrol alone the eternal ice gave up 6 bodies, including tourists and mountaineers. The sixth body turned out to be tzi, who had died 5300 years ago during the Neolithic period also known as New Stone Age. He is the oldest preserved mummy in the world - even older than the Egyptian kings. His discovery opened a new door into the past. A scientific sensation and the oldest known criminal case in history - a case that is yet to be solved.
