Secrets of the Iceman
The Ice Man was found in September 1991 by casualty by a couple of German mountaineers wandering on the Mount Similaun (in Oetztal Alps, at the border between Austria and Italy). The extremely warm summer in that year molt a great part of the Schnalstal glacier, revealing the body. The first analysis made at the Innsbruck University shocked everybody: the 13 kg (30 pounds) heavy mummy was the oldest natural ice mummy: 5,300-year old, and the oldest preserved human being ever discovered intact.
