The reconstruction gives a vivid impression of a Stone Age hunter
An injury to the head, not an arrow wound, may have killed ÷tzi the Iceman, the 5,300-year-old mummy found in the Italian Alps, says a new paleoproteomic study into the brain of Europeís oldest natural human mummy.
The protein investigation appears to support a 2007 research into the mummyís 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 mummyís brain which showed two dark coloured areas at the back of the cerebrum. The inury added to the already known arrowhead wound on the shoulder and wounds on the hand.
Found in ÷tziís left shoulder in 2001, the stone arrowhead has long been thought to have caused the prehistoric manís death, fatally severing his left subclavian artery.
The 2007 study suggested that blood loss from the arrow wound would have first made ÷tzi lose consciousness, with death coming later, from a violent blow to the head.
Either the manís killer gave ÷tzi the final whack, possibly by hitting him with a stone, or he could have fallen over backwards and hit his head on a rock, the researchers concluded.

Let me begin with a brief exchange from a 1978 interview, conducted by reporter Jeremiah Novak. He was speaking with two American members of the Trilateral Commission (TC), a group founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller and his intellectual flunkey, Zbigniew Brzezinski.
Video: Who Owns the Federal Reserve 2015-05-28 19:52
It's not like we don't have half a clue who actually "owns" the Federal Reserve, but we just wanted to know, superficially, who the Fed itself claims it is owned by (and, additionally, how the agency justifies its unchecked power).
Apparently the agency never officially answers that question. See for yourself in the video above.
