iceman-oetzi-otzi-reconstructed-new_32525_600x450This is pretty incredible. Listen to the podcast and read up on Mr.Ötzi from other sources. (Thanks  to Mr.Renneson for sharing.) Once you’ve listened to and read about our dear cold friend. Post your comment that answers this: What would you do if YOU were the one that found Ötzi? How can discoveries like these impact our view of the past?

    Wow!
    If i found Otzi, I would be amazed.
    I think this has helped us all understand a lot more about the people who lived before us. Its amazing how the body was preserved for so long.

    If I was the hiker in 1991 and I found Otzi I would probably thought the same thing they did. I would rush to the nearest lodge and alert the authorities. If you ask me, it kinda looks like a lost Halloween decoration. Sadly I don’t have the same obsession like some people but I do think that he is beneficial to the scientific world. We now have an insight into a part of history we have never seen before.

    If I was the hiker to find Otzi without any knowledge of who he was, I would only be freaked out that I found a partly decomposed body near a hiking trail. However, now that there is proof that this corpse (Otzi) lived 5300 years ago, I would be amazed at how lucky I was to fulfill an archaeologists dream just by doing an everyday free-time activity! These kind of discoveries impact our society because now we have a different historical perspective of what live was like a long, long time ago!

    If I found Otzi I would probably be quite scared at first. Then I would call/find the nearest police station and let them know. I do think it would be really interesting to learn about Otzi though. It’s really cool that a body has been preserved for that long, it’s too bad we can’t bring him back to life.
