Ötzi – the man from Hauslabjoch

In 1991, in the Ötztal Alps this glacier mummy was found, which researchers say dates back to the late Neolithic period. The Iceman, also known as Ötzi, is considered one of the most spectacular archaeological discoveries. His skeleton, as well as his clothes and tools are exhibited in South Tyrolean Archeology Museum in Bolzano and can be viewed there.
