New Information About Oetzi

19 May 2002


The archaeologists studying Oetzi, the stone age man found frozen in ice in the Alps, have made an interesting discovery, a flint arrowhead lodged in his shoulder. Many experts have speculated how the man came to be where he was found, but this recent discovery suggests that he had probably fled an attacker before finally bleeding to death. That he was involved in violent combat not long before his death seems likely since the teams studying his remains have also found a deep wound on his right hand.
