Iceman Uncovering the Life and Times of a Prehistoric Man Found in an Alpine GlacierOn September 19 1991 a couple hiking along an Alpine ridge stumbled upon a frozen intact corpse melting out of a glacier He was dubbed the Iceman and his discovery alo. An interesting book ostensibly about Ötzi the Iceman Ötzi rhymes with 'tootsie' fact fans While the book does faithfully report the state of knowledge on this five thousand year old frozen chap at the time it was written the book is eually about the problems that arise when the media tries to get uick answers from a scientific process that can necessarily take years to complete as well as the dangers when scientists start to care about their status with the media and with their earnings than the science they should be doing Overall it's very interesting but the fact it was written within ten years of Ötzi's discovery back in 1991 means that there's absolutely no scientific consensus on anything about him present in the book which means an unfortunate lack of closure when the book suddenly skids to a halt

Remarkable and dramatic book Brenda Fowler takes readers through the bizarre odyssey that began in the Stone Age and continued for years after the Iceman was unearthe. A good overview of the Iceman project prior to the museum in Bolzano being opened The read for me was difficult that it didn't truly draw me in and make me want to find out what happens next It was told as a story than a presentation of scientific facts but I found it difficult to sort out and remember from passage to passage which scientists and other people involved where which It took me a long time to get through this book as I read it alongside a few others as I do lately

Iceman: Uncovering the Life and Times of a Prehistoric Man Found in an Alpine Glacier Read ↠ 109 Ý On September 19 1991 a couple hiking along an Alpine ridge stumbled upon a frozen intact corpse melting out of a glacier He was dubbed the Iceman and his discovery—along with the realNg with the realization that he was actually 5000 years old set off a whirlwind of political scientific and media activity that made him an overnight sensation In this. This is a very interesting non fiction book telling the story of the discovery of a 5000 year old mummy in the alps and the measures taken to learn about him and preserve him The science as they worked to unravel the mystery of his life and death was very interesting and very easy to follow The power struggles and politics over his body were just as interesting I didn't really expect this book to be nearly as fascinating as it wasMy only complaint about this book is that it ends years ago and has been discovered since I hope the author will someday update it with a newer edition with info on discoveries since the book ended
