BiographyEdit

The Amcotts Moor Woman was Found in Lincolnshire, England in 1747. Her left shoe still remains but her right hand and shoe are now lost. This is because the body was found over 250 years ago, and humans did not know how to preserve bog bodies. Based on the design and material of her left shoe, she is thought to be alive in the late Roman Period in Europe.

MummificationEdit

She was a bog body which means she was naturally mummified in a peat bog(a large area of wet dead plant material).

StudiesEdit

Not many studies due to the fact that the only remnant of the mummy is the left shoe.

PathologyEdit

Unknown
