Otzi The Iceman - Short Story

Given the name “Otzi the Iceman,” in September 1991 a well preserved Mummy was found in the Ötztal Alps, hence the name Ötzi. Near the Similaun mountain and Hauslabjoch on the border between Austria and Italy.  He is Europe's oldest natural human mummy (3255b.c.) and has offered an unprecedented view of Chalcolithic Europeans. His body and belongings are displayed in the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano, South Tyrol, Italy. Pathologists have deduced that he died from an arrow that cut an artery in his shoulder. How it happened they can only guess. The story attempts to imagine a little of his life on the mountains (his family, friends, lovers and enemies) and make an educated guess on how he came to suffer his fatal wound.
