The next morning, we went to the archeology museum featuring Ötzi, the 5,000-year old mummified man discovered melting out of the ice in the alps near here in 1991. While Austria and Italy both claimed him, he was found about 100 m on the Italian side of the border, so here he remains!
They even haveÖtzi in a refrigerated room. They mist him so he has a glaze over him so he doesn't desiccate further. I took this picture out of the Wikipedia article and if you are squeamish you might want to squint! His arm remains across his chest in the position he was found in the alps.
