Ötzi: A Copper Age Murder - Talk by Dr James Dilley
Time & Location
Ötzi the Iceman (aka. The Hauslabjoch Mummy) was one of the most important archaeological discoveries of the 20th century. New archaeological discoveries about him and appearances in film and media keep Ötzi firmly in public interest. Found in 1991 by German tourists, the remains of a man were seen emerging from the ice close to the Italian – Austrian border. Over the following decades Ötzi has given archaeologists a unique view into the life of a person at the very end of the Stone Age. The Iceman was found with his clothes and equipment which have been studied and replicated to test their effectiveness. As an experimental archaeologist James has himself made replicas of Ötzi’s equipment to understand more about life 5300 years ago.
