Cladh Hallan one of the most exiting find spot - In a "eureka" moment worthy of Dr. Frankenstein, scientists have discovered that two 3,000-year-old Scottish "bog bodies" are actually made from the remains of six people.    According to new isotopic dating and DNA experiments, the mummies—a male and a female—were assembled from various body parts, although the purpose of the gruesome composites is likely lost to history.

In 2001, archaeologists found two bog mummies, one apparently male, one apparently female, buried under a roundhouse in the prehistoric village of Cladh Hallan. There was no soft tissue left, but their skeletons were found in a tight crouch posture. They made news at the time for being the most ancient mummies discovered in Britain, about 3500 years old, and deliberately mummified. Researchers also noticed that the male skeleton was not just one man, but composed of body parts of different men.
