The Ice Man

'The Ice Man' was my first children's book that I wrote by myself, having co-authored a number of books along with fellow members of the Geography Collective.


It features the story of Otzi: the Ice Man of the book, who was discovered in the Italian Alps in the early 90s

There were some parallels with a current story which was featured in the Daily Telegraph earlier in the week.
Melting ice in the Italian Alps is revealing a large number of corpses which date back to World War One.
What else will be revealed around the world as the ice sheets and glaciers shrink back...
Or are we actually heading for a new Ice Age ?

Check out the term Maunder Minimum.....
