    Bog bodies don't decompose because there's no oxygen in bogs.
    One was found that was 4000 years old and still looked like it recently died.

    Why is it assumed they were sacrificed? Did I miss something in the article?

    I thought the same. The title is misleading.

    I've seen a documentary that said these people bound the victims and threw them in the bogs to ward off the evil spirits which they thought lived there. That could be what they were referring to.

    Because they are usually found in a sack or with a noose around the neck with throat cut, strangled, or blunt force trauma as cause of death (ie, head bashed in)

    It is also plausible that these were simply excecutions of criminals

    about as bad as sacrificing a virgin to a volcano...

    what a waste of a perfectly good lava flow.
