  • Hi I am Otzi. I lived in a village like this about 5300 years ago.
  • When Otzi was alive 5300 years ago Wholly Mammoths still roamed in Siberia, the great pyramids were not built yet and the invention of the wheel was still a century away. 
  • Otzi would go hunting in the mountains that were by his house. That is where he was found 5300 years after he died.
  • Otzi was found in northern Italy Close to the Ostrian and Italian Border. 
  • On September 19 1991 Otzi was found. He was found by Helmut and Erika Simon. They were hiking the mountain when they found Otzi. 
  • At first scientist thought that Otzi died of hypothermia but when they started to take a closer look at Otzi they think that he died of something else. Otzi had an unhealed cut in between his thumb and pointer finger on his right hand a cut that looked like he was defending himself from someone that he was fighting with. As they took an even closer look at Otzi they found that there was an arrow head in his right shoulder bone. Scientists now be leave that is why Otzi died not from hypothermia but from being shot with an arrow.
  • Otzi had lots of tools. He had a bow and Arrows, He had a flint bladed dager, and an ax. All these items were found with him when he was discovered.
  • Otzi was found in a liminal zone which are known for human sacrifises. Otzi was found in a liminal zone 11000 feet up the mountain above the tree line.
