Somewhere on this ball we call "Earth"

The man is believed to have lived around 375-210 B.C. One theory is that he died as a religious sacrifice with the rope used to strangle him still visible around his neck.

"Tollund Man is a naturally mummified corpse of a man who lived during the 4th century BC, during the period characterised in Scandinavia as the Pre-Roman Iron Age.[1] He was found in 1950, preserved as a bog body, on the Jutland peninsula.[2] The man's physical features were so well-preserved that he was mistaken at the time of discovery for a recent murder victim.[3] Twelve years before Tollund Man's discovery, another bog body, Elling Woman, had been found in the same bog.[4]

Scholars believe the man was a human sacrifice rather than executed criminal because of the arranged position of his body, and the fact that his eyes and mouth were closed." (More)
