    Who would have thought a man who lived in the Stone Age would be dressed in clothes made in China? A thousand – year – old mummy, nicknamed Otzi the Iceman was wearing a Chinese jacket, latest research has found. But where and how he got the jacket has become a topic of great debate.
    Otzi is the nickname of a well – preserved mummy from about 3300 BC. He was found in 1991 in the Otztal Valley in the Alps, near the border between Austria and Italy. Two German tourists, Helmut and Erika Simon found him when they were climbing.
    Oztis was thought to be the body of a soldier who fought during World War I but was found to be thousands of years older. Analyzing Otzi showed that the items with him were all of different ages.
    His arrows are 7000 years old, the axe belonged to a time hundreds of years later and the skin in which the man was dressed originally belonged to a goat that lived in China. Otzi’s tattoo shows that he might have been a wizard, according to Prauda, the official newspaper in Russia.
    There are still many mysteries surrounding Otzi, yet the most famous and frightening one is his curse. It is said that Otzi had mystic powers and those who trouble his dead body will be doomed to die. Otzi has claimed seven people so far. With the death of several people who have touched the remains of the ancient man, the “Otzi curse” mystery has snowballed.
