The Body in the Bog
How would you feel if you found a foot in your machinery at work? For peat-cutter Eddie Slack , 'it was terrible'. But for
Britain's archaeologists it was tremendously exciting. It turned out to be the preserved foot of a 2,500-year-old Iron Age man.
With Q.E.D.'s cameramen looking over their shoulders, a team led by Dr Ian Stead uncovered elbows, arm, fingernails, a ginger moustache and beard, neatly clipped. Then they found a garrotte around his neck.
Was it a mugging or ritual sacrifice? What was his last meal? What could modern technology reveal about the prehistoric murder victim? Series editor DAVID FILKIN
