The bodies of two prehistoric men were recovered from an Irish bog; one of the men was six feet six inches tall; the other apparently used a kind of primitive hair gel imported from France. Both men had been murdered. The tall one was tortured, stabbed in the chest, and then decapitated; the other had his head split open and was disemboweled. | Harper's Magazine
