Discovery of Tollund Man - Arch365 128

Tollund Man was discovered in May 1950. He is one of several so-called 'bog bodies' from Denmark and other places in Europe, deposited mainly in the Iron Age. He caused quite a stir, mainly because his head was so well preserved you can almost imagine he is merely asleep. He famously inspired the poet Seamus Heaney.
