Denmark, 1950, two brothers were digging peat to be used as fuel when they came across what is now known as the tollund man. he still had hair, skin, and a five o'clock shadow, so they assumed it was a recent murder victim and called the police. upon arrival, they noticed rope around his neck: this wasn't a recent murder victim. in fact, the body was from 300-400 BC, and was shockingly well preserved by the peat.

an EXTREMELY well preserved body from circa 500 - 600 BC found in Denmark in he still had skin, hair, and a five o clock shadow. he was found when two brothers were digging in peat to use for fuel. the peat is what preserved him so well.
