Description

In 1991 the world was electrified by a chance discovery of a perfectly preserved corpse trapped in an Alpine glacier. Preliminary tests showed that this was the body of a Neolithic hunter who died some 5300 years ago. Now Dr Konrad Spindler, the leader of an international team of scientists examining the body, makes the results of his investigations public for the first time and answers a series of fascinating questions about the 'Ice Man' and the clues he can give us to the nature of daily life in the late Stone Age. The result is a riveting scientific detective story, giving us the fullest picture yet of Neolithic Man - our ancestor.show more
