Lindow Moss near Wilmslow where two or possibly three bog bodies including Lindow Man or Pete Marsh (now in the British Musuem) were discovered in the 1980s. A prehistoric trackway was also reported in the area in the 19th century. The layer of sphagnum peat in which the bodies lay has now almost completely disappeared due to commercial peat cutting on the Moss.
Lindow Man, a "bog body" dated between 20 and 130 AD. This body of a well-built man aged in his twenties was found in 1984 in a Cheshire bog, England. He had small ears, a full head of darkish hair, a short beard, moustache and side burns. Lindow Man met a violent end in which he was struck on the head, was garrotted with a thin cord, and had his throat cut.
