5,300 year old frozen mummy with tattoos

In 1991, near the border between Austria and Italy, two tourists made an amazing discovery. They found a human body sticking half way out of a glacier. The person that they found was a 5,300 year old man mummified by a glacier. His name is Otiz, and he is Europe’s oldest natural mummy, now on display at South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology, Bolzano, Italy.
