Otzi is one of the most famous aboriginal people on the planet. Some 5000 years ago he died on a mountaintop in the Austrian Alps. Some 20 years ago he was discovered in a frozen state where he had lain since 3000 BC.

Today we know a great deal about him from his clothing, weapons, his skin and even his DNA.
