The discovery of a prehistoric torso in a dried-up bog in Ireland leads archaeologists and forensic experts to investigate the find, which is dated to the Bronze Age. As with other bog bodies, the evidence suggests the person suffered a violent death; and leads to a theory that the victims were kings who were sacrificed to assure the fertility of the land and people.
