The 5,000-year-old man, 30 years later

From National Geographic

“Ötzi was wiry, short (5’2”), and about 46 years old when he died. He was left-handed and wore a U.S. men’s size 8 shoe. His eyes—still preserved in their sockets—were long thought to be blue, but genomic analysis has revealed otherwise. ‘We could prove he had brown eyes and dark brown hair, and he had a typical Mediterranean skin tone,’ says Albert Zink, head of the EURAC Institute of Mummy Studies in Bolzano, which has done much of the core research on Ötzi.
