There is an excellent article over at National Geographic right now about everyone’s favourite Ice Man.
Long story short: he’s not so icy anymore.
Back in 2010, the famous Neolithic man—who was naturally mummified after being killed dying on top of a mountain in Italy—was purposefully thawed so that an autopsy could be performed on him.
And the finds, dear readers, were pretty freaking spectacular. Click for the article!
