You've read the book.... ( I hope... ) now get the app...

Just before Christmas, I had a book published by Collins which told the story of Otzi the Ice Man. He was found high in the Italian Alps in 1991, and scientists have been piecing together his story, and his DNA for over twenty years.
You can buy the book from various stockists.

There's now an app where you can explore more about The Ice Man.
This costs £1.49 and is available for the iPhone and iPad.

The original soundtrack completes your full immersion into the atmosphere of Ötzi’s world. The fun continues when you, the young explorer, enter the Neolithic Age and dress Ötzi with warm fur clothes, examine his tattoos with a magnifying glass, and even transform yourself into the Iceman. Take a photograph of yourself, choose a background and in two easy steps, you can share your personalized image with friends... and the adventure continues!

In collaboration with the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology, who kindly provided a range of images for the book.
