In 1991, mountain climbers on the Niederjoch Glacier on the Italian-Austrian border came across something unexpected: a body. The materials discovered with the physique suggested it might be very old, perhaps from the 1800s. It had been an incredibly warm summer, and five bodies had already turned up inside the place. He was named Ö tzi and he could possibly be the oldest human mummy preserved in ice ever found. But something here was various. James M. Deem takes us on a captivating and creepy journey to discover about glaciers, hulking masses of moving ice that are now offering up several secrets inside the past. But radiocarbon dating proved the iceman was 5,300 years older, from the Copper Age.
