Hear all about ice man.

With the current cold spell of weather, it might be worth going along to an event about a man frozen in ice for 5,300 years.

Renfrewshire Local History Forum has organised the talk and slide show on Otzi the ice man tomorrow.

Probably the most studied human being to have lived on the planet, Otzi the iceman was discovered in 1991 in the Italian Alps by two climbers.

His frozen remains are perfectly preserved - his hair and fingernails intact - along with his bow and a quiver of arrows along with a knife and an axe that lay with him in his icy grave.

Professor James Dickson will explain some of the wonderful secrets that have been discovered over the years relating to the iceman's lifestyle.

The talk takes place in the museum and art gallery in Paisley High Street at 7.30pm.

Refreshments will served at the end of the lecture.

All are welcome to attend the talk, which is free of charge.
