Abstract

FIVE THOUSAND YEARS AGO, a man died in the Alps. It's possible he died from a blow to the head, or he may have bled to death after being shot in the shoulder with an arrow. There's a lot we don't know about Otzi (named for the Otztal Alps, where he was discovered), despite the fact that researchers have spent almost 30 years studying him.
