Immerse yourself in the unique history of England's smallest county!


We are delighted that Prof. Klaus Oeggl of the Botanical Institute, University of Innsbruck, will be talking about Ötzi, the life, death and environment of a Prehistoric glacier mummy.

Ötzi was discovered accidentally by hikers in 1991, together with his clothing and equipment, on the Schnalstal/Val Senales Valley glacier. Ever since his discovery he has been the subject of intensive research. Ötzi lived during the Copper Age, a period of the late Neolithic – he is therefore older than the Egyptian pyramids and Stonehenge.

This talk is in collaboration with Leicestershire Fieldworkers & The Prehistoric Society and will take place on Tuesday 19 November at 7.30pm
£5 per ticket which can be purchased on the door, or in advance on WeGotTickets website

Otzi, the iceman.
