Abstract

14C ages of samples from the Ötztal Ice Man, found on the Hauslabjoch in the Tyrolean Alps in September 1991, were determined using accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS). Uncalibrated 14C ages of 4555 ± 34 bp, 4560 ± 65 bp and 4535 ± 60 bp were measured on tissue (mean of four samples), bone and grass, respectively, from the Ice Man. The mean of all of our measurements is 4550 ± 27 bp.
