350-175 B.C. Found in County Offaly, Ireland in 2003
Oldcroghan Man fits the classic profile of an Iron Age bog body. He died a
gruesome death, suffering repeated cuts and stabs before he was dismembered.
Experts debate whether he was a sacrifice to the gods, a criminal being
punished, or perhaps both. His torso, the only part of him recovered, reveals
that he was exceptionally tall for his time, standing roughly 6' 6".
