The Ultimate Last Meal of the Neolithic Glacier Mummy "Ötzi"

The ultimate last meal of the Neolithic Glacier Mummy “Ötzi”Recent CT-scans of the glacier mummy revealed that his stomach was completely filled with ingesta. New samples from these ingesta will provide additional information about Neolithic diet, but will also shed light on the very last moments of his life. The answer to the crucial question, where did Ötzi consume his ultimate last meal, has the potential to solve the enigma about his demise on the Tisen pass 5300 years ago.
