Lindow bog man at the British Museum

A brief film of the remarkable bog man of Lindow, on display at the British Museum.

The Lindow Man is an example of a Celtic human sacrifice discovered in a bog near Manchester in 1984 by peat-cutters, a find known as a bog body. The body is now on display in The British Museum. The body's legs and pelvis were missing, leaving the chest, head and arms.
