Discovered in 1934, the body was discovered lying on its right side. Like the Windeby bodies, Dätgen man, and other bog bodies, some sticks had been placed on top of the body. A piece of wool fabric and an animal skin cape were found with the body.
It is a bog body, meaning that it was mummified in a peat bog.
Along with Husbäke Man and Neu England Man it is currently on display at the Landesmuseum Natur und Mensch with the Husbäke man in Oldenburg, Germany.
