Upper arm bones from the second skeleton in the bog at Sorø.

Upper arm bones from the second skeleton in the bog at Sorø.

Sorø Man         Two skeletons were found in a bog near Sorø on Sealand, Denmark in 1942. Both skulls had holes in the skulls, a sign of surgery or someting else?    On the picture you can see one of the skulls, it has a hole in the middle with a diameter of 1.5 centimetres. Next to the hole is a depression, perhaps he got hit on the head with an axe? Maybe they tried to remove a blood clot or maybe it had a more ritual meaning. Here there are also some signs that the wound was healing.
