The Iceman Suffered Brain Damage Before Death

6 posts in this topic

An injury to the head, not an arrow wound, may have killed Ötzi the Iceman, the 5,300-year-old mummy found in the Italian Alps, says a new paleoproteomic study into the brain of Europe’s oldest natural human mummy.

The protein investigation appears to support a 2007 research into the mummy’s brain. The study pointed to a cerebral trauma as the cause of death.

The guy is being chased in the mountains, get's hit by an arrow, falls over from a cliff and crushes his head on a rock on the way down.

Fascinating how we just keep learning. I have been trying to keep up with Otzi news, there always seems to be something else to learn. Thanks for posting this.

I am not big on the cerimonial burial hypothesis though. Seems rather a stretch to be frank.
