Wednesday September 22 Finished watching the Iceman video . More Details on “Ötzi” the Iceman  There has been an ongoing analysis of his material culture;  including clothing, tools, and objects he had with him.  Material culture indicates that the Neolithic culture was very  advanced.  There was evidence of both wild and domesticated species;  including hunting, gathering, herding, and farming (mixed  economy).  There was an effective use of individual species for their known  properties. Items he was found with  Grass cape (possibly), mat, and backpack were all made from  Alpine swamp grass.   Hide coat: made from a domesticated goat hide, scraped on the  inside, hair left on the outside. It was tanned with fat and smoke.  Alternating dark and light hide strips were sewn together with  animal sinew thread. Heavy use is indicated by sweat and dirt  stains on the inside and torn seams repaired with grass fibers.   Loincloth and leggings: made from domesticated goat hide that  was tanned and sewn in a similar fashion to his coat. Deer hide
