Tollund Man has been to France
Tollund has returned from a medical investigation in France
For Tollund Man, going to France wasn't just holiday. The reason for his first trip abroad was, that he had to have his feet scanned. During the work on a tv-documentary in december 2014, the French anthropologist Dr. philippe Charlier discoveret some "dots" on his feet that nobody had ever remarked before. They could be a sort of warts, and subsequently he - or rather his feet - was invitet to Paris for a medical examination in a micro CTscanner. The feet were also scanned in a socalled OCT scanner. The CT scann vas so accurate that it scans 115 times per milimeter, and that is enough to create a digital 3D model of the feet. The OCT scanner makes a sort of non-destructive spektral analysis, that can reveal small variations in metabolism in the tissue. The hope is to to be able to determin wether he had warts or not. Apart from the potential warts, we will also examine his arteries to see if if he had any signs of arteriosclerosis. It is interesting - but might also be useful in the search for a cure - to se when in history or prehistory, the different diseases of mankind appears.
After the investigations in Paris, Tollundmanden and his feet were presented at the 6th internationale congres in Pathographi in Nancy.
