The Tollund Man: Denmark's remarkable bog mummy

The Tollund man is a naturally preserved mummy found in a peat bog in Denmark. Find out more about bog mummies in the fascinating documentary.
The Tollund man lived during the late 5th century BC and/or early 4th century BC, about 2,400 years ago. He was buried in a peat bog on the Jutland Peninsula in Denmark, a find known as a bog body. He is remarkable for the fact that his body was so well preserved that he had seemed to have recently died.
