A wide range of archeological findings within the Hohle Stein (2,050m) area near Vent prove the existence of early hunters' settlements in the Rofental Valley, dating back to 4000-8000 B.C., as well as Stone Age hunting bases.
After the finding of the iceman Dr. Leitner of the University of Innsbruck made further investigations. He proved the existence of more Stone Age hunters' bases in the Ötztal valley, e.g. at the Hohler Stein mountain in Niedertal/Vent which is at an altitude of 2,050m and only 10km (beeline) from the place where the iceman was found.
