National Geographic Documentaries Iceman Autopsy

He’s been dead for more than 5,000 years. Poked, prodded and probed by scientists for the last 20 years. And yet today, Ötzi the Iceman, the famous mummified corpse pulled from a glacier in the Italian Alps nearly two decades ago, continues to keep many secrets. Now, through an autopsy like none other, scientists will attempt to unravel more mysteries from this ancient mummy than ever before, revealing not only the details of Ötzi’s death, but an entire way of life. How did people live during Ötzi’s time, the Copper Age? What did they eat? What diseases did they cope with? The answers abound miraculously in this one man’s mummified remains.
