Modern Man (Otzi)

Homo sapiens arrived in Europe from Africa about 100,000 years ago. Although taller and slimmer than Neanderthal Man he rapidly adapted to life in a colder climate.

'Otzi' the Alpine shepherd had dark, shoulder length hair and probably a short, trimmed beard. His well-made leather clothes and complete survival kit show him to have been a member of a farming community which retained links with its hunting past.
