 Red Franz

This bog body is known as "Red Franz", and was found in 1900 in a bog near Neu Versen (Germany). Found lying on his back, the man lived sometime between A.D. 200 and 400. How Red Franz looked during his life can, for the moment, only be imagined. However, his facial reconstruction is currently underway and will be revealed for the first time in The Mysterious Bog People. Drents Museum.
