in denmark, 1950, two brothers were digging peat to be used as fuel when they came across what is now known as the tollund man. he still had hair, skin, and a five o'clock shadow, so they assumed it was a recent murder victim and called the police. upon arrival, they noticed rope around his neck: this wasn't a recent murder victim. in fact, the body was from 300-400 BC, and was shockingly well preserved by the peat.

"The Tower of Silence" aka "Dakhma". These pits are created to expose of the dead. They have them in India and Iran. The people believe that bodies of the dead are contaminated (and also may house a demon) so they set them around this pit. Men on the outside ring, women in the center ring and children in the inner most ring. With the use of lime, the bodies gradually disintegrate and the rain, washes the remaining body material off into the pit where it is eventually washed out to the ocean.

The Zoroastrian tradition (in parts of Iran & India) uses Dakhmas (or “Towers of Silence”) where the dead are exposed to the elements & offered to vultures and other scavengers. Tibetan Buddhists have a similar practice known as “Sky Burials.” Zoroastrians believe a corpse is unclean and use Dakhmas to hasten decomposition & avoid the pollution of the body by evil spirits, Buddhists view the body as a vessel which might as well be put to good useby “giving alms to the birds.”

BioUrns. What a neat idea!
at the very end of the bucket list.... This is a Bios Urn. It will turn you into a tree when you die. There are several different kinds of plant available. Designed by Spanish Designer Martin Azua.
This Awesome Urn Will Turn You into a Tree After You Die.... I LOVE this idea!! This is a Bios Urn, a completely biodegradable urn that contains a single tree seed. When planted, the tree seed is nourished by and absorbs the nutrients from the ashes. The urn itself is made from coconut shell and contains compacted peat and cellulose. The ashes are mixed with this, and the seed placed inside. You can even choose which type of tree you'd like to grow! www.urnabios.com/

Carl Tanzler or sometimes Count Carl von Cosel was a German-born radiologist in Key West, Florida who developed a morbid obsession for a young Cuban-American tuberculosis patient, Elena Milagro "Helen" de Hoyos that carried on well after the disease had caused her death. In 1933, almost two years after her death, Tanzler removed Hoyos's body from its tomb, and lived with the corpse at his home for seven years until its discovery by Hoyos's relatives and authorities in 1940

The corpse of Maria Elena Milagro de Hoyos (1909–1931) encased in wax and plaster circa 1940. Dr. Carl Tanzler attached the corpse’s bones together with wire, fitted her body with glass eyes. As she decomposed, he wrapped her in silk cloth soaked in wax and plaster. He fashioned a wig out of hair given to him by her mother not long after her burial, and filled her chest cavity with rags to keep her shape. He used lots of perfume, disinfectant and preserving agents keeping the body in his bed.
Carl Tanzler was a German-born radiologist who developed an obsession for a patient, Elena Milagro “Helen” de Hoyos that carried on well after Hoyos died. In April, 1933, Tanzler removed her body from the mausoleum and took it home. He fitted the face with glass eyes and as the corpse decomposed, he replaced the skin with silk cloth soaked in wax and plaster of paris. Tanzler kept the body in his bed using perfume and disinfectants to mask the odor.
Carl Tanzler, or Count Carl von Cosel, was a German-born radiologist in Key West, FL who developed an obsession for a young Cuban-American tuberculosis patient, Elena Milagro "Helen" de Hoyos that carried on after the disease killed her. In 1933, two years after her death, Tanzler removed her body from its tomb and lived with the corpse at his home for seven years until its discovery by de Hoyos's relatives and authorities in 1940. This is her body with a wax face that Tanzler created for her.
The Undying Love of Count Carl von Cosel -based on a dream, Carl immigrated to the U.S., where he became a radiologist. He met Maria Elena Milagro de Hoyos, where he saw her as the one from his dreams. He pampered her with items but she rejected his love. Upon death, he felt she begged him to dig her up, which he did. Then he put her decomposing body together and kept her in his bed. A sick and twisted story of undying love.
