The German couple called Simon made a sensational finding in 1991 during their holiday in the Senales Valley. On their hike along the Alpine ridge between Similaun and the Finail Peak, they discovered a male body in the ice. The forensics in Innsbruck in Austria soon proved what nobody could have imagined until then. The glacier mummy, also called Ötzi, had lived 5300 years ago in the Neolithic Age. This can also be seen from the clothes made of plants, and from the arms and tools he carried.
