÷tzi, the 5,300 year old iceman

Here is a study of the stone tools and weapons found of the Iceman that lived in the Copper Age, between 3370-3100 BCE

What I found particularly interesting was that Copper Age communities did maintain long-distance contacts with other communities.

Cool. Thanks for posting. I was sort of hoping they would discuss his bow, but I didn't see it up there. The pressure flaker was quite interesting. Amazing how far back such tools go.
