Oetzi the Iceman's blood is world's oldest (BBC News)
much more at BBC link above
Oooh, this is fascinating! I wonder if they'll be able to tell what kind of diseases he was carrying or had suffered from...? Though I don't like to seem morbid, but I often assess a region's social history via its epidemiology. This is exciting for me, lol.
The linked article has a number of related articles linked just below it-- it's all interesting reading, and much of it I had missed. Thanks, Woofie!
My favorite old-timer is Tollund Man - true, at about 3,000 years younger than Oetzi, he's still a pup, relatively speaking.
