Salt Mine Hallstatt And The Man In The Salt

Salt is a fantastic preservative. Three miners discovered this fact in a very spooky way in April 1734. The miners discovered the well preserved corpse of a man in the salt mine in Hallstatt, who most likely died in a mine accident in the first millennium before Christ.

Archaeologists from the Natural Historic Museum Vienna spend every summer digging at the high valley and the salt mine Hallstatt and every summer to find out more about the prehistoric time and the ancient craft of salt mining.
