Illus. with full-color photos and diagrams. Science writer Don Lessem recounts the discovery, excavation, and study of the mummified body of a 5,000-year-old man, discovered by a couple hiking near the border between Austria and Italy. By studying the Iceman's clothes, equipment, and even some of his food, scientists were able to piece together an unprecedented picture of prehistoric life. Full-color photographs show the well-preserved mummy, and specially commissioned artwork reconstructs his appearance.
