Iceman Oetzi gets a new face for 20th anniversary
Google News ^ | February 16, 2011 | AFP

Posted on 02/21/2011 1:04:20 PM PST by SunkenCiv

As part of a new exhibit at the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano (www.iceman.it), two Dutch experts -- Alfons and Adrie Kennis -- have made a new model of the living Oetzi, this time with brown eyes.

Indeed, recent research has shown the Iceman, now approaching the tender age of 5,300 years, did not have blue eyes as previously believed.

The Kennis model was created based on three-dimensional images of the mummy's skeleton as well as the latest forensic technology, and will go on display on March 1 until January 15, 2012.

The least they can do is show what they think he looked like.

Oetzi has the same DNA as Thomas Jefferson. (Haplogroup 'K')

I just finished reading an interesting article in Archaeology magazine, March/April 2011, about the Copper Age in central Europe—Bulgaria, Romania area. The copper age used to be tacked onto the new stone age, destict from the subsequent Bronze Age when civilization really became much more elaborate. Now from new excavations, they feel that the metalurgical skills of the copper age required a higher level of social organization much closer to the bronze age. This crucial period is thought to be between 5,500 and 7000 years ago. Several large communities went extinct around 6,300 years ago. Numerous copper tool heads have been found looking like picks, adzes, and hammers.

So, anyway, back to Oetzi, 5,300 years old. He was found with a copper tool head in his possession. If I remember correctly it looked like items in the Archaeology article. My theory, this tool had survived the death of the founding copper age culture, and migrated westward with fleeing people who settled up in the Alps where it was hard to bother them. This was a treasured ancient artifact. Oetzi, for whatever reason, was wounded and fled with this precious village treasure. Feel free to add to this story. [Note: I am working on several historical novels.]

In one of the articles shortly after Oetzi was discovered , I'm pretty sure, it said that the discovery of the copper ax with him moved the copper age back about 1,000 years in time.
