I remember hearing about this particular corpse before. An Ice Age man, found dead of an arrow wound in the Alps.

Now they have analysed his blood, and found that he died within 30 minutes of being hit by the arrow. It is the oldest blood sample to be identified.

Not sure how they are going to find out who dun it .... ?
