In February 2007 we went to Italy and visited Bolzano. There you can visit the Iceman of Bolzano also known as Oetzi. He is 5,300 years old and his body was only found, extremely well preserved, in 1991 by a couple of Alpine walkers.

Unbeknown to us when visiting this awe-inspiring museum, there was a financial battle going on with the discoverers fighting for a financial reward from the Italian government.

Here is the BBC report on the latest developments.
