Dr. Patrick Hunt is one of the researchers who's worked on the Otzi project, and you can hear him relate his experiences tonight during his lecture Otzi the Iceman, A 5,300-Year-Old "Mummy," and Forensic Science at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; 314-746-4599 or The free event begins at 7:30 p.m.
