| Porsmose Man |
|Site||Porsmose Peat Bog|
|Location||National Museum of Denmark|
The Porsmose Man's corpse was discovered in 1946 near Næstved. He was found with an arrow that entered his skull through his nose. Another arrow was found through his chest, which likely killed him.
The Porsmose Man was completely mummified in the Porsmose peat bog with only his skeleton intact.
Aged 35-40-year-old the man has an arrow deeply embedded in the breastbone another entered his skull through his nose. Both arrows must have been fired at an angle from above and from close range.
It was determined that the arrows were fired at close proximity, possibly indicating either an ambush or an execution. The arrows are a type which belong to the Single Grave Culture period.
