#6 What is 'Bog Butter'?
'Bog Butter' is actually a result of a practice thousands of years ago where butter was stashed and preserved in 'bogs.'
Bogs are a sort of natural land terrain.
The butter prepared was with common methods such dairy fat, tallow or lard. As one might expect after all these years, it smells absolutely awful.

#5 Tollund Man
He is one of the most famous bog bodies known today. Tollund Man was found in 1952 in Denmark. He was found completely naked except for a belt and a hat.

Yet another famous bog body specimen is the Grauballe Man. He was too found in Jutland Peninsula of Denmark. He was completely naked too and had red hair, whicg scinetists believe was an effect of the bog. His neck was severed so forcefully that his attacker severed his esophagus and trachea.
Usually, the conditions of the bog severly tan the skin of the bodies while the bones are dissolved. But in this case, the bones were perfectly preserved.
