Dig That Doll! - Bocksten Man

In the 14th century, a Swedish man met with foul play and ended up in a bog near Bocksten. We can't be entirely sorry he did, because most of his clothes and accoutrements survived. (It's likely he was also wearing some undergarments of linen that haven't survived.)

Here's a different view, and he's drawn his knife out.

The hose are hard to see unless he hikes up the skirts of his tunic.
