Review:

"... Die vorliegenden Berichte über neue Funde und Ergebnisse dieser als ‚Sternstunde der Archäologie‘ eingestuften Entdeckung sind die ersten wissenschaftlich fundierten Annäherungen an einen einmalig konservierten Menschen aus der späten Jungsteinzeit. Die Aufsatzsammlung zeigt, daß unter anderem mit Hilfe von Gen- oder Pollenanalysen und elektronenmikroskopischen Bildern unerwartete Einblicke in die Lebensgewohnheiten des Jungsteinzeitmannes möglich werden, aber auch in die Abbauprozesse von organischem Material wie Haut und Muskeln ... Eine Fülle von Farb- und Schwarzweißbildern, Grafiken und Zeichnungen ergänzen die Beiträge. Eine Stärke dieser Sammlung machen die Aufsätze über die kulturhistorischen Hintergründe aus ... Der ‚bunte‘ Eindruck dieser Aufsatzsammlung wird verstärkt durch eine linguistische Analyse der in den Medien verwendeten Personenbezeichnungen für den ‚Mann im Eis‘. Vom ‚urzeitlichen Alpenwanderer‘ bis zum ‚frozen Fritz‘ der Amerikaner sind alle Facetten medienwirksamer Phantasie aufgeführt ..." Freiburger Universitätsblätter, Juni 1996 "Die zahlreichen gekonnt zusammengestellten Forschungsarbeiten von international renommierten Fachleuten eröffnen dem Anatomen eine sehr interessant gestaltete Sicht auf die moderne Mumienforschung. Das Buch stellt für jeden Anatomen nicht nur eine Abwechslung und Wissenserweiterung dar, in der nicht etwa Fakten von dem Spezialisten für den Spezialisten aneinandergereiht sind, sondern eine fesselnde und umfassende Darlegung eines anatomisch faszinierenden Forschungsgebietes wird aufgetan". Annals of Anatomy Heft 5/97 "... Ausgehend von Darstellungen zu allgemeinen Aspekten der Mumifizierung und der technischen Untersuchung von Mumien, finden sich hier – regional gegliedert – Berichte über Mumien aus dem ägyptischen, dem chinesisch-japanischen, dem arktischen, dem südamerikanischen und dem europäischen Bereich. Diese mit Bildmaterial gut dokumentierten Beiträge werden ergänzt durch einige weitere ... Details. Der Band gibt einen guten Überblick über die Vielfalt von Mumienfunden in vielen Teilen der Welt, über ihre Entstehung, die Fundumstände und die Versuche einer wissenschaftlichen Auswertung." Zeitschrift für Morphologie und Anthropologie, 2/3, 1999
