Otzi the iceman radiocarbon dating
Therefore, the body must have been placed in the bog approximately 2,000 years ago during the early Iron Age.Using small samples of his hair, Tollund Man's age has been confirmed by the latest refinements in radiocarbon dating.There was a rope made of two leather thongs twisted together under a small lump of peat beside his head.It was drawn tight around his neck and throat and then coiled like a snake over his shoulder and down his back. Scientists know that this moss was formed in Danish peat bogs in the early Iron Age about the time when Jesus Christ was born.The Tollund man lived during the late 5th century BC and/or early 4th century BC, about 2,400 years ago.
He had probably been killed by the rope around his neck.
The noose had left clear marks on the skin under his chin and at the side of his neck but there was no mark at the back of the neck where the knot was.
