    They were also able to find that Old Croghan Man "Had very well manicured nails" as said by Isabella Mulhall, the Bog Bodies Project coordinator.

    Both Clonycavan and Old Croghan were proved to be young, with few signs of physical labor during their lives, and were healthy at the time of their deaths.
    By examining chemical traces in Clonycavan Man’s hair, scholars from the National Museum of Ireland concluded that Clonycavan Man’s diet was rich in vegetables hence concluding that he was killed in the summer or early fall when fresh produce would have been available. His hair also created much interest for both scholars and the public due to unusual way it was twisted over his head and held in place with gel made of plant oil and pine resin. Some people called it the world’s first mohawk. These ingredients were imported from France or southwestern Spain, suggesting that Clonycavan Man himself, or the people who sacrificed him, were trading with the Continent.
    Old Croghan Man’s was stood almost six and a half feet. Analysis of his hair and nails showed that he regularly ate meat, a known luxury of the time. Ironically, his last supper was composed of cereals and buttermilk, which scholar Ned Kelly believes was a ritual meal. Around one bicep, he had a braided leather armband and a bronze amulet covered in decorative copper-alloy mounts.
    Examining the details of both men’s lives and deaths has led Kelly to suggest a new way of looking at the meaning of other Irish bog bodies. “I believe these men were failed kings or failed candidates for kingship who were killed and placed in bogs that formed important tribal boundaries. Both Clonycavan and Old Croghan men’s nipples were pinched and cut. “Sucking a king’s nipples was a gesture of submission in ancient Ireland,” says Kelly. “Cutting them would have made him incapable of kingship.” The bodies served as offerings to the goddess of the land to whom the king was wed in his inauguration ceremony. According to Kelly, both men’s multiple injuries may reflect the belief that the goddess was not only one of the land and fertility, but also of sovereignty, war, and death. “By using a range of methods to kill the victim, the ancient Irish sacrificed to the goddess in all her forms,” he says.

    The slicing of both men's nipples made the archaeologists conclude that both men had been killed for ritual reasons and that they were royal, because in ancient times the kissing of a king's nipples was seen as a mark of respect, or an act of submission. "Cutting these men's nipples would have prevented them from ruling as kings in this life -- or the next," Mr Kelly explains. He believes, they were very possibly kings, or at least failed candidates for kingship. Kelly said "The king was so important that he needed to be killed three times. These men weren't set on fire but their multiple injuries may suggest that these men were being sacrificed to the goddess in all her forms -- the goddess of fertility, the goddess of war and the goddess of sovereignty."

    Although the Icemaiden displays typically europoid features, the same cannot be said for the entire Pazyryk tribe. DNA analyses of the other Pazyryk mummies suggest that this was an ethnically diverse tribe, with individuals varying from displaying European features to Mongolian ones.

    Blue-coloured tattoos were a common element in the appearance of the various Pazyryk mummies that were found throughout the twentieth century. "Conan" was adorned with pictures of griffin-like creatures, deer and mountain goats. The tattoos on the mummies discovered by Rudenko were discovered in 2003/2004 in examinations carried out in the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, using infrared photography technology (the dried skin was too dark to see these otherwise). The bodies of a man and two women bore images of animals such as tigers, leopards, horses, wild mountain sheep, deer, birds and imaginary creatures.
