Ötzi’s Birch Bark Container

Excluding VAT
Out of Stock
  • Container made from birch bark and lime bast cordage.

    Two birch-bark containers were found near Ötzi, made from a piece of bark and stitched together with lime tree bast and a circular piece of bark that formed the base. The interior of one of the vessels was blackened and contained freshly picked Norway maple leaves and charcoal fragments. It is assumed that wrapped charcoal embers in the leaves and carried them in the birch-bark container. In this way, the embers could be kept for several hours and fanned into fire in a few seconds.

    Approx 20cm high & 15cm diameter.
