Mysteries revisited: the Killhope Moor body


Recommended Posts


Pretty sure they could match DNA to current descendants, if only to rule out an identity. Probably reburied without tissue samples being kept, though, as was long before DNA was a possibility.

Acid in the peat bogs causes DNA to disintegrate, so none
of the bodies found in them have yielded useable samples to date.

That being said, most of the bodies are significantly older than this one appears to have been. It's possible that some may have still survived.

Worth digging him up to try, assuming the unmarked grave he is buried in isn't too unmarked.
