Italy gets its iceman back
Posted: Friday, March 27, 1998
(CNN) After a six-year custody battle, the well-preserved remains of a prehistoric hunter are going back to Italy where they were found.

The hunter's body, mummified in ice, was discovered in the Alps in 1991 by tourists. With him were weapons, leather clothing and a basket.

Austrian officials took the hunter, the oldest, best preserved body yet found, to Innsbruck, Austria, for study.

Scientists concluded that the 5-foot-5-inch hunter was about 45 years old when he died, probably from cold and exhaustion.
