A life full of secrets - part 1

Ötzi's life ended in a seemingly insignificant manner. His impact, however, tells a much different tale of a mountain legacy.

Here's one of the top impacts I like about Ötzi:

It took 100 lbs. of malachite to extract enough copper ore to pour his copper axe, which can fit easily in the palm of your hand. The copper is traced back to Southern Tuscany. He lived and was murdered 350 miles away from the copper mines indicating the trade routes were open. 5000 years ago, people were moving, people were talking, and business was booming!
