100 B.C.-A.D. 100 Found in Aarhus, Denmark in 1952
Peat cutters accidentally struck his head with their shovels. Knowing of
Tollund Man and other finds in the region, they were less shocked than they
might have been otherwise. Grauballe Man was carefully excavated under the
supervision of archeologist and bogbody specialist P. V. Glob, and has become
one of the most X-rayed and analyzed corpses in the world. Before his throat
was cut, Grauballe Man ate a soup laced with an hallucinogenic fungus perhaps
intended to induce a trance-like state in a ritual that included his sacrifice.
