Lindow Man to visit Manchester Museum

The Iron Age man (usually found at the British Museum) should be around "between April next year and March 2009 and the museum wants to hear the views of local people on how the remains should be displayed. A museum spokesman said: "We are particularly interested to reflect a range of different points of view in our interpretation of the body, including those of archaeologists, museum curators, and special interest groups as well as members of the public. "We will not be telling one story, but looking at Lindow Man from many different perspectives. We are very interested, for example, in gathering evidence of how Lindow Man is important to the local community."

The spokesman said: "We would be very interested to hear from members of the public who have particular memories about Lindow Man, either because they live near the site where he was found or because they remember coming to see him on display at the Manchester Museum, or for some other reason."

Anyone who wants to share thoughts and memories of Lindow Pete should email the museum at: You should get in touch before February 10. "
