Display and Examination
The remains are currently on display at the Archäologisches Landesmuseum. Professor P.V. Glob wrote that the man died in 300 BCE. What is unique about this bog body is the fact that the weight of the peat in the bog had flattened his body. Only his hair, skin, nails and his few clothes were preserved, along with traces of some bones. He was found with a leather belt, shoes, and a pair of breeches.
Prior to the Damendorf Man's discovery, the remains of what are believed to be a woman were found in 1884 in the same bog. The clothing of the corpse is all that remains. A girl was discovered in 1934, dating to 810 BCE.
