Iron Age Man Leaves Museum

From an article published on the BBC News web site on 28th January 2008:
The remains of an Iron Age man found in a peat bog are leaving the British Museum for the first time in 17 years.

Lindow Man was found in a Cheshire marsh in 1984, nearly 2,000 years after his horrific death.

Lindow Man is being moved from London to the Manchester Museum, on long-term loan, and will be displayed from April.
