The Emmer-Erfscheidenveen Man was naturally mummified in a peat bog. It is dated to 1200 BCE. It is one of the oldest bog bodies to be discovered and was recovered in 1938 in Drenthe, Neatherlands. The body's recovery consisted of only 2 bones: a partial tongue bone and a small bone from the foot or the hand. Although the body itself was poorly preserved, it is a great discovery for preserved clothing that includes a wool cap, deer skin shoes, a cow hide cape, and woolen undergarments.
