Clothes and Fashion at the Time of the Tollund Man

Description We know quite a bit about how people used to dress at the time of the Tollund Man. We have discovered numerous items of clothing in the bogs dating from the Iron Age and many of them were well-preserved. Several of the bog bodies were dressed when they were discovered whereas others were naked with their clothes simply placed next to them in the bog. In other cases we have simply discovered items of clothing or pieces of clothing in graves from the Iron Age, and based on these discoveries we have been able to form a clear picture of how people used to dress in the Iron Age.

Silkeborg Museum took the initiative to have some of the items of clothing from the Iron Age reconstructed and we display some of them on this page.
