Otzi, the name given by scientists to the mummified corpse found one evening in by September 1991. Two German tourists discovered the mummy while walking off the path between the mountain passes Hauslabjoch, and Tisenjoch. When they first saw the mummy, they thought it was just a rotted corpse of a recently deceased hiker or mountaineer. However, when archaeologist Konrad Spindler took a closer look, he made a massive archaeological discovery that rewrote the history books. Otzi, better known as the iceman, was over 5,000 years old! Near the place he was found, a copper axe, longbow, arrows and quiver, flint dagger, birch-bark containers, a backpack, stone disc and a birch fungus. Scientists think Otzi was around his mid to late 40's.
