Another good looker! Lindow Man, also known in jest as Pete Marsh, is the preserved bog body of a man discovered in a peat bog at Lindow Moss near Wilmslow in Cheshire,England.At the time of death, Lindow Man was a healthy male in his mid-20s, and he may have been someone of high status, as his body shows little evidence of heavy or rough work. Lindow Man was strangled, hit on the head, and his throat cut. Dating the body has proven problematic, but pos, some time between 2 BC and 119
