EURAC – Institute for Mummies and the Iceman

The Institute for Mummies and the Iceman was founded in2007 at the European Research Academy, EURAC, in Bolzano. It sees itself as the successor to the Faculty of Alpine Prehistory at the Innsbruck University in Austria, where the Iceman was examined from 1991 to 1998, the year in which the faculty was closed down. The “Iceman Institute” documents, coordinates and promotes research on the Iceman and other mummies. The Institute works very closely with the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology.
