About 3300 BCE
The Iceman is a natural mummy, discovered in 1991 in the Ötztal Alps. Accompanying remains gave a remarkably well-preserved picture of Neolithic life. His belongings, scattered around the body, included an unlined fur robe stitched together from pieces of ibex, chamois, and deer skin; a woven grass cape and a furry cap; shoes made of leather and stuffed with grass; a complete copper-bladed axe and a flint dagger, both with wooden handles; 14 arrows made of viburnum and dogwood, two of which had flint points and feathers; a fur arrow quiver and a bow made of yew; a grass net that may have served as a sack; a leather pouch; a U-shaped wooden frame that may have been a backpack; and food consisting of sloe berry, mushrooms, and ibex bones. He lived in the Copper (Chalcolithic) Age, and is Europe's oldest known natural human mummy.
