Bog Bodies

Episode 7  |  SBS  |  July 9, 2017

In 1950, three Danish farmers came across a grizzly find: a body, buried in a peat bog. It was a murder that took place over 2000 years ago. The victim was named Tollund Man, and is a Bog Body, a naturally mummified corpse buried in a peat bog during Europe's Iron Age. From Ireland to Russia, hundreds of Bog Bodies have been discovered in these soggy environments on the margins of civilisation.
