Nov 30, 2009: Ötzi

Ötzi the iceman, he never got a kiss.
Ötzi the iceman, don't know what he missed.
Is it any wonder, that his butt got froze?
Ötzi that poor...

Oh wait, that's not the guy...

Ötzi is a mummified human discovered in 1991 in the Schnalstal glacier in the Alps, on the border between Austria and Italy. He died around 3300 BC. The mummy offers a wealth of information about the humans living in Europe at the time. Ötzi was named after the Ötztal region where he was found.

The new Iceman photoscan website now gives all web users access to images of the body gathered by researchers. The site has a dynamic online-map-style interface to let people zoom into photographs that capture Ötzi from all angles and show details as small as 1 millimetre.
They're providing these up close & personal scans, as an excellent way to protect Ötzi from being damaged from over study. Good idea, these scans should answer the questions most scholars have about him. They've taken special care to record Ötzi's tattoos, and they even have 3-D images, if you have a pair of anaglyph glasses (cyano and red).

aside - Ötzi's tools have already revealed a lot.

So he had tats. Cool.

Trilby  Monday Nov 30 06:16 AM

wonder if those are prison tats...

ZenGum  Monday Nov 30 07:36 AM

The full details of the Otzi story get better and better as more is discovered... arrowhead in the back, wound dressed but not healed, cousin's blood on his clothes ... he wasn't just some lost shepherd.
The variety of materials his gear was made from also impresses me. Several different kinds of fur/skin, various plant materials, flint and bronze tools.
Thanks for the tip, I'll check those pics out when I have more time.

When do we eat? j/k

I appreciate the fact that the scientists are sharing this. That site is way cool. I can't wait till I have time to delve. Anyone know where I can get some of those glasses?

Tools? He had two dicks??

Looks like the type of bar code that aliens use to keep track of the indigenous population.

Looks like he died while doing the hokey-pokey. Having just put his left hand in for the second time, Herr Otzi was preparing to shake it all about when he suddenly expired on the spot.

DanaC  Monday Nov 30 10:41 AM

What amazed me was the fact that he carried a pack of tools and stuff with him, including stuff to repair his kit and clothes.

I liked this article so much I am tempted to subscribe to the magazine.

The picture that emerges from my analysis of Ötzi's possessions is of a mature, highly skilled hunter – certainly not a shepherd. The tools in his kit were multipurpose, skilfully made and well maintained. Together they provided, with minimal weight, all the necessary tools for hunting, butchering and bringing back meat, skins, antlers or horn on his lightweight pack frame. His copper axe and bearskin hat were both utilitarian and displays of prestige. Copper implements were not common at that time, and in nearly all northern hunting societies the killing of bears, which provide furs, meat and fat, was a visible measure of hunting prowess.
Think Clint Eastwood.

Most video stores will give you the 3-D glasses.

spudcon  Monday Nov 30 12:12 PM

Those tats are from the gang he was in. Check out the "Gangsta sign" he's doing with his fingers.

dar512  Monday Nov 30 12:21 PM

Hist mother told him that his face was going to freeze like that, but kids never listen.

She also told him to wear a coat, but Otzi thought he'd be warm enough -- especially since he was going out to play ultimate frisbee.

capnhowdy  Monday Nov 30 12:25 PM

Is that his dick down there? Just noticed.

spudcon  Monday Nov 30 12:29 PM

I think this is the guy whose nuts got stuck when they pulled him out of the ground. He lost everything down there.

Good quality, great service, reasonable price.

capnhowdy  Monday Nov 30 09:49 PM

It is done. Thanks, Els.
