That is to say, did people from the south venture into the Alpine region and vice versa? I think he died of a lot of the stuff combined but the main reason I think is assassinated. Was Ötzi as a trader travelling possibly as far as the area around today's Florence? Last updated September 2018 This site contains copyrighted material the use of which has not always been authorized by the copyright owner. My theory is that Otzi died in a battle because they found four blood stains. The oldest accidentally preserved human ever found was the victim of a brutally efficient murder. I think this because Otzi was found with an arrowhead in his shoulder and medical examiners have determined that Otzi probably died 3 hours after he was shot. Reconstruction The paleo artists Adrie and Alfons Kennis from the Netherlands have completed a life-like reconstruction of the Iceman on behalf of the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology. I think he died in battle because.
I also think he was assassinated because some of the artifacts the birch box and back pack were empty maybe some one murdered him for his valuables in the artifacts. Following his collapse, the murderer s went up and caved-in the back of Otzi's head to finish him off. You have been able to examine each of the four theories and draw conclusions based on your research. Prof Albert Zink and his colleagues collaborated with researchers at the Center for Smart Interfaces at the University of Darmstadt in Germany to apply what is known as atomic force microscopy to thin slices of tissue taken from an area surrounding the arrow wound. Almost everything that is known about Neolithic clothing has been gleaned from Otzi. A memorial now lays in the position Otzi was found. The cause of his death remained a mystery.
It seemed these markings were therapeutic, rather than symbolic. Ambushed by his enimies Facts 1. I think that Otzi died of a attack because he may have done something bad like stole something or killed someone. Raised copper levels were only present at the extremities and this correlates with other change indicators, and thus it is doubtful if one can establish a heavy metal contamination for Ötzi's actual life time: raised values might also be due to environmental influences over the 5,000 years since his death. Other factors told of Otzi's failing health -- understandable for a 45-year-old in the Copper Age who'd then be considered elderly. There was serious bleeding at the base of the brain which corresponded to the depression in Otzi's skull.
Image of Ötzi the Iceman in a glacier. He is oldest intact human ever found. Maybe he was going to shoot an arrow with his bow and the string broke and hit him in the sholder blade. Initial tests indicate the presence of fatty, baconlike meat of a kind of wild goat called an alpine ibex. That is why I think he died from hypothermia.
According to their study published in Scientific Reports, Ötzi's attire choices were selective and pragmatic. I think that the blood on his clothing was from his friends he could have been helping and the blood on his weapons were from enemies. In its frozen state, the Iceman's deep caramel skin had a dignified luster, reminiscent of a medieval figure painted in egg tempera. Neither you, nor the coeditors you shared it with will be able to recover it again. While trying to recover Otzi the left hip was damaged because of the constant melting water flow. After a few days the news spread out.
And that is my conclusion for my theory. Blood would have gotten on his weapons by using them in battle. One sticky rumor was that semen had been found in his anal canal, prompting headlines about his supposed homosexuality. Either the man's killer gave Ötzi the final whack, possibly by hitting him with a stone, or he could have fallen over backwards and hit his head on a rock. When you think that we have succeeded in identifying actual tissue changes in a human who lived over 5,000 years ago, you can begin to understand how pleased we are as scientists that we persisted with our research after many unsuccessful attempts. One droplet trickled down his chin with the slow inevitability of a tear. This could only mean that it had been consumed very soon after the flowering of the plant just before the Iceman died.
Pollen found in his body placed his final hours in the springtime, and his last hike probably along a path up the Senales Valley toward an alpine pass just west of the Similaun Glacier. What is so special about Otzi? But among the prehistoric quartet, Ötzi most closely resembled the farmers found in Bulgaria and Sweden, while the Swedish and Iberian hunter-gatherers looked more like present-day Northern Europeans. Schwarz's endoscope kept bumping into ice crystals that blurred the camera lens. Blood cells tend to degrade quickly, and earlier scans for blood within Oetzi's body turned up nothing. The display is sectioned off into a special exhibition room which gives visitors the chance to view the body only if desired.
The Iceman section of the museum possesses a very scientific and tranquil atmosphere where architecture and presentations remain simple in order to allow the importance of the body to successfully dominate. As soon as the autopsy concluded, Samadelli lowered the temperature in the laboratory below freezing. For millennia, this area was covered by glaciers which, by the end of the twentieth century, had receded. Before he died Otzi arranged his belongings on the ledge around him and then slumped over. The next day, in a burst of hurried surgical interventions as urgent as any operation on a living person, they would perform the first full-scale autopsy on the thawed body, hoping to shed new light on the mystery of who the Iceman really was and how he had died such a violent death. Which made him turn and lose his balance.
I think it was died in battle with he aorrow in the back and his arm got parelieds. I think his tattoos had nothing to do with the fact he died. Then he some how rolled or tried to get up and fell, into an icy lake and got hypothermia. Telltale markings in the construction of prehistoric arrows could be used to identify the archer much in the way modern ballistics can link a bullet to a gun. The heat of the fire was increased by blowing oxygen through bellows. I think Otzi was murdered then robbed of his valuables. Examinations of the ice also contained pollen which indicated that Otzi could have died in autumn and together with this evidence, scientists were able to conclude that the Iceman may have been caught in a storm and died of hypothermia.
I choose theory 4 died in battle. Otzi also carried a bone needle and piece of fungus on a string that some believe were part of a prehistoric medicine kit. With the exception of missing toenails, all but one fingernail and an outer layer of skin the Iceman is otherwise perfectly reserved. His arm was stuck around his body so maybe his right arm couldn't move since it was stuck under the ice, and he was reaching for something with his left arm and and he died when it was over his body. In 1998, Otzi was returned to his rightful home Italy where further investigations were conducted. The last reason is because his muscles were badly decompsed. There were signs of arteriosclerosis and a possible stroke.
