The contributions to the volume have their origin in a spontaneously organized meeting of experts at Innsbruck 1991 for finding the best measures for the conservation of the newly found Iceman. Due to their target the techniques of conservation of corpses all over the world are described: Smoke-drying (Ecuador), sun-drying (Canary Islands), natural mummification by combination of low temperatures and dry air (Eskimo mummies of Qilakitsoq); the reader also will find descriptions of permafrost mummies of Greenland and `bog-mummies' of North-West-Europe including new methods of investigation in the fields of roentgenological, microbiological, microscopical, and microchemical methods and the latest imaging techniques in medical archaeology.
