I personally find it abominable that they are dissecting him. He is the loved one of someone, (God, if no one else), and his body deserves respectful burial.

Fascinating! I visited the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano, the Iceman's story is very interesting.

It would have been nice if a transcript - or at least a short description of the actual findings - were included.
Some people cannot watch or listen to videos (there are deaf people, you know), and some of us simply DISLIKE watching videos, profoundly so.

Thanks for the article! I echo Mary L's thoughts and wonder if genetics will be studied.

His remains have been treated with respect and they are contributing to a better understanding of human bio-history. I too hope that at some point he will receive an honourable burial.
