We now have a good idea what kind of clothes people wore 5,000 years ago. Scientists studied the pieces material that were on the body a man who died Europe 5,300 years ago. His body was frozen ice in the Alps Mountains. Archaeologists discovered his body a glacier in 1991. They called him Otzi the Iceman. They also found bits of clothing and Otzi's accessories and weapons. Scientists have analysed everything they found to get an idea what early humans looked like, what they ate and what they wore. They even have an idea what Otzi's voice sounded like. The scientists said Otzi provided "rare and valuable information" how humans used animals five millennia ago.

The research team said Otzi's clothes were several different animals. He had leggings that were made goat leather. He wore a hat made brown bear fur. Otzi's leather coat was stitched together from least four different kinds animals. His shoes were made from different kinds grass. Otzi's body was also covered 61 tattoos. Scientists say these were for pain relief his aching joints and not for decoration. Otzi was 45 when he died, which was quite old a man 5,000 years ago. He suffered heart disease and had dental problems. Scientists say he did not die naturally. He was murdered. Someone killed him firing an arrow him, which hit him the head.
