At the end of last September a group of Austrian travellers, on an excursion through the Alps, found remains of a body and tools of the Bronze Age, 4,000 years ago. Stuart Needham, Bronze Age specialist at the British Museum in London, says this discovery is not comparable to any other. The remains or remains found to date have been almost exclusively of graves. This has been the first time that remains of the person carrying something have been found.

According to Needham, and studying the tools, it is clear that the waste is from the Bronze Age. In addition, this person was a man and his age ranged from 20 to 40 years. Among the utensils on top of it was found material to light fire. At present these residues are located at the University of Innsbruck and the study being carried out is expected to know more about the day to day of the Bronze Age.
