Weerdinge Men

These two bog bodies, found together near Weerdinge in the province of Drenthe (Netherlands), date to the first century A.D. Although it was originally thought that the bodies belonged to a man and a woman, analysis has revealed that both bodies are male. One body shows signs of a violent death from knife wounds to the belly. Drents Museum.
