Ötzi The Iceman!
Who is he and why is he such an important discovery?
Ötzi is well-preserved natural mummy of a man aged between 30 and 45 when he died. If Ötzi were alive today, he would be about 5,300 years old!
The reason that he is so important is that he is Europe's oldest natural human mummy and the first prehistoric human ever found with his everyday clothing and equipment on.
