The Elling Woman - a bog mummy discovered in Silkeborg, Denmark in 1938 by a local farmer who at first believed it was a drowned animal. She was found wrapped in a sheepskin with a leather cloak tied about her legs. She died around 280 BC by hanging (just like Tollund Man). Her well preserved hair, which was 90 centimeters long, was braided and tied into a knot. Elling Woman is believed to have been a human sacrifice.
