New research performed on the 5,300-year-old Ötzi the Iceman suggests that he died from a head injury.

The protein investigation appears to support a 2007 research into the mummy’s brain. The study pointed to a cerebral trauma as the cause of death.

At that time, the research relied on a CAT scan of the mummy’s brain, which showed two dark-colored areas at the back of the cerebrum. The injury added to the already known arrowhead wound on the shoulder and wounds on the hand.
