When a well-preserved body was discovered in a Cheshire peat marsh in 1984, police initially thought they were dealing with the victim of a recent crime. Their subsequent investigations, however, soon proved that the body belonged to a Celt, a sacrifice victim of 2000 years ago. Celtic archaeologist Dr Anne Ross and chemist Dr Don Robins, who began to investigate the matter further, relate the story of their discoveries in this book. The text tells how they were able to date precisely, to the day, the death of "Lindow Man", how he was killed and why he was killed on Lindow Moss. It explains who this Celt was and the significance of his death. The authors piece together a picture of life under the Roman occupation and trace the influence of the Celtic Druid religion on later British history and back into Bronze Age times. Other works by the same authors include "The Secret Language of Stone" by Dr Robins and "Pagan Celtic Britain" by Dr Ross.
