BiographyEdit

Ötzi was born around 3300 BCE. He is one of the oldest mummies ever discovered. His body was found on September 19, 1991 in the Ötztal Alps at the Austrian-Italian Border. He was discovered with an arrowhead in his left shoulder so his death was most likely a homicide.

MummificationEdit

His body was mummified due to freezing cold air, and dying near glacier water.
