Iceman radiocarbon dating

Otzi also carried a bone needle and piece of fungus on a string that some believe were part of a prehistoric medicine kit. His backpack for example was badly damaged and scientists are not sure how it was worn: over the shoulders or over the head.

The quiver he carried has no strap to indicate how it was carried.

Among the items found with Iceman were his copper-blade ax, 14 iron-tipped arrows, a firestarter, a birch bark container, a piece of ibex meat, a grass cape, a dagger with an ash handle and flint blade and a sheath, a half-finished yew-wood long bow (longer than a man is tall), a quiver filled with mostly half-finished arrows, an arrow repair kit, medicine, and pieces of antler used to make arrows.

He carried embers wrapped in maple leaves placed in a birch bark container, which shows that Neolithic people carried fire from place to place rather that started news fires from scratch.
