A minor point: The Ice Man was recovered by Austrians on Italian soil
(ice?). I don't normally think of either as Scandinavians. Also, he was
sorta chipped out rather than dug up.

If the archaeologists who dug him up (drained him?) were Indians, and
not Scandinavians, and had no Scandinavian permission to do so, you
might actually have a case. They weren't.
