Science Event of the Week
September 19, 1991, Ötzi, the Iceman, a Stone Age wanderer and the most ancient human being ever found, was discovered in the Similaun glacier in the Ötzal Alps on the Italian-Austrian border. His frozen body was found along with artifacts of his vanished way of life. An examination of his gut contents showed the man took his last meal not long before setting out on a hike from which he was never to return. The meal was a simple affair, consisting of a bit of unleavened bread made of einkorn wheat, one of the few domesticated grains used in the Iceman's part of the world at the time, some other plant, possibly an herb or other green, and meat. An Austrian reporter named him Ötzi.
