In the early 12th century, Denmark became the seat of an independent church province of Scandinavia. The adoption of this new material coincided with other changes in some past societies, often including differing agricultural practices, religious beliefs and artistic styles, although this was not always the case.

    Subsequently, the body was desiccated and the tissue disappeared. The cool, waterlogged conditions of Northern European bogs a type of wetland create low-oxygen, highly acidic environments ideal for body preservation. Wooded areas were cleared, burnt and replaced with fields of arable crops. Neanderthal sites have been found in the south of England from this era, though no traces of early modern humans have been found.
