Tolluwo Man

Tolluwo Man A well preserved corpse from 220 BC found in a seperate peat bog

Experts started digging again on Monday, saying they expected to find more bodies dating back 2,000 years to around the time of Christ

Cuts and slashes on the skeletons showed they had died violently, said Holst. But nothing was known for sure about the identity of the killers, or their victims.

That is one of the big mysteries

'We think it is a sacrifice related to warfare and probably the defeated soldiers were killed and thrown into the lake,' he said. 01

F&S! Wow, what a completely awesome find. Very interesting to say the least. Can't believe how well-preserved they are. Is there any chance this is a hoax?

Whoa, that's quite a discovery! I hope we can learn more about history from all those years ago. It's quite a mystery but to be brutally killed it makes me wonder if we were always in war and conflict. Also makes me wonder about whether it it was people who had slaughtered them or a fearsome extinct species of some sort.
