      Iron Age murder mystery as CT scan shows British man from 100AD was
      beaten, strangled, then beheaded in 'pagan ritual'
      The Daily Mail [UK], 9 March 2012

      Archaeologists have solved a 1900-year-old 'cold case' mystery - using a
      medical CT scanner to scan the head of an Iron Age murder victim. The
      preserved head of the second century Briton - known as The Worsley Man
      due to his location near Salford - was found in a peat bog in 1958. The
      scan shows he as bludgeoned over the head, garrotted and then beheaded
      [I hate when that happens] - leading archaeologists to suspect he was
      sacrificed. [Think there's a chance?] Experts had been divided over how
      he died - but the new CT scan shows clear marks of the ligature that
      strangled him. The Worsley Man is thought to have lived around 100AD
      when Romans occupied much of Britain.

      Noted that Worsley man (found at Salford) and Lindow man (found near Wilmslow) had very similar backgrounds to their deaths (Druidic influence?) even though

        Noted that Worsley man (found at Salford) and Lindow man (found near Wilmslow) had very similar backgrounds to their deaths (Druidic influence?) even though they were 100+ years between them. Salford and Wilmslow are both near Manchester, UK and it strikes me that on wild Saturday nights in that city, some modern-day person might suffer the same or similar fate =-O
