The Old Man is the main attraction in Cairnholm's museum. He was found in a bog, discovered by turf cutters digging for peat.
According to Martin, the old man was found in the 1970's by turf cutters digging for peat, as most bog mummies are. Because the body looked so fresh, they thought that there was a murderer loose in Cairnholm. However, upon further examination the idea was dismissed when a Stone Age bow was found in his hand and a noose of human hair around his neck, which they don't make like that anymore.
Cause of DeathEdit
Aside from strangulation from the noose, the old man also was killed from drowning, disembowelment, and a blow to the head. The reason this was done to him may have human sacrifice.
- Human hair was not used as a noose generally during the Stone Age.
