Ötzi, the world-famous Iceman from Hauslabjoch was discovered in 1991 by a German couple. Results of anthropological analysis and carbon dating have confirmed that the man lived approximately 5350 years ago during the late Neolithic Age. The body is in an excellent state of preservation and many personal artifacts were found on or near the corpse [1].
