About this event
In the fall of 1991, two hikers in the tztal Alps came upon the mummified remains of a 5,300 year old man. Now preserved in a climate-controlled freezer at the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology, Otzi's body & accompanying artifacts provide a window into life in Europe during the Copper Age.

The mummy also provided a number of medical surprises. Although we think of Lyme disease as a new phenomenon that originated in Connecticut, Otzi was infected with the Lyme disease microbe. His diet was filled with unprocessed, natural foods, yet he suffered from atherosclerosis. Most mysteriously, Otzi died from an arrow shot to the back-his murderer had followed him up to the 10,200 foot pass where his body was found.

The museum tour is open to all ages, with a participating chaperone 18 or older required for students under 13.
