The Cashel Man was from the time of 2000 BCE, he is a bog body (mummy) from the Cúl na Móna bog near Cashel in County Laois, Ireland. He was found in 2011 by a Bord na Mona employee. The body itself was a young male around 20-25, he had been intentionally covered in peat after his death. The figure was recovered after being partially damaged by a machine in 2011, thus leading to his discovery. His head and arm were thought to be extremely damaged and lost until later discovered. Experts believe, with help from radiocarbon, that this body dates back to roughly around 2000BCE, making the Cashel Man the oldest fleshed bog mummy in all of europe.
