On 19 September 1991 a glacier mummy representing the Chalcolithic Europeans was discovered at Tisenjoch at the main ridge of the Ötztal Alps at a height of 3210 m. The discovery of the “Man from Hauslabjoch” from the period around 3400 BC was a sensation.
The “Man from the Ice” was discovered in a diagonal groove of the Similaun glacier, that had been moving across this groove for the last 5300 years. “Ötzi” (or “Frozen Fritz” in English) as he spontaneously came to be known as, could thus “survive” the time there quite safely. Only as the glacier ice withdrew, the site of discovery was laid bare. The “mummy of Similaun” has been on exhibition in the South Tyrolean Museum for Archeology in Bozen since March 1998.
Since Ötzi was discovered in the border region between North and South Tirol, both Italy and Austria at first laid claims to the find. According to the line of the border as agreed in 1918, the mummy was found on Italian territory. In 2006, a new treaty between Italy and Austria came into power according to which the watershed determines the border – however, since an exception was agreed upon for Tisenjoch, the discovery site of “the man from Similaun” remains South-Tyrol, after all.
