The Ice Man: Otzi

Ice Man PhotoScan

This site offers the visitor a number of ways to get up-close and extremely personal with Otzi.

Otzi is the naturally mummified remains of a man from about 3300 BCE. The mummy was found in the Fall of 1991 on the border between Austria and Italy. The name Otzi comes from Ötztal (Ötz valley), the region in which he was discovered. He is Europe’s oldest natural human mummy.

The remains are very fragile and must be kept in very specific conditions. This allows only a few select people to explore the remains. Luckily we live in a technological age that allows us unprecedented access.
