His facial expression seems to be that of a person peacefully asleep. Yet the leather rope tied around his neck tells a different story. This photo shows Tollund Man, a ‘bog body, who was discovered in 1950 in a bog at Tollund Mose, Jutland, Denmark. Tollund Man is estimated to have lived in the 4th Century BC and was likely murdered, sacrificed or executed, hung by the braided leather noose. He is currently on display at the Skileborg Museum in Denmark.
