100 B.C.-A.D. 100 Found near Kiel, Germany in 1871
The year Rendswühren Man was discovered, a self-taught German scholar
named Johanna Mestorf—who coined the word Moorleiche (bog
body)—published the first catalogue of such finds. She interpreted
Rendswühren Man as a murder victim. He was 40 to 50 years old when he
died, likely from a blow to his head. Near his body were the remnants of a
woolen cloak and a skin cape. His caretakers in the 19th century smoked his
body in order to preserve it.
