Abstract
This paper deals with the secret of the bog and its bogbodies. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the motive behind their deaths, whether they were sacrificed, executed as a result of crime or died because of other reasons. To do this I have examined the archaeological facts around some bogbodies foremost from late Bronze Age and early Iron Age (exept for Bockstensmannen) and their interpretations. I also discuss the bogs roll in the ancient community. The results of this investigation shows that this is not an easy problem to solve, even though in my opinoion the bog of its own is a place where people were buried because the society did not accept them.
