We were CSI Investigators to find out about the mysterious Lindow Man. The Lindow Man was found in Lindow Moss, Cheshire by a peat cutter. The body was well-preserved and offered lots of clues into the past and how he died. 

We found out he was about 2000 years old and was from the time of the Celts. The way he died suggests he was a sacrifice to please one of the many Gods or Godesses the Celts worshiped. The contents of his stomach showed poisonous mistletoe powder and he was also struck on the head and back and his throat was cut. He was found lying face down in the peat. 

He has been nick named 'Pete Marsh' because of where he was found.
