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
