Archaeobotanical studies are currently being carried out on all the plant remains retrieved from the high alpine site where the Iceman ‘‘Ötzi’’ was found (3,210 m a.s.l.). Preliminary results already show a great diversity of species (121 taxa) mainly originating from lower regions, which must have been transported to the Tisenjoch site by a number of vectors. Spatial modelling has been carried out for one part of the plant remains unequivocally assignable to the Iceman. The resulting patterns… CONTINUE READING
