"Girl of Uchter Moor"

The German news site t-online.de has a news item about a 2500 year old girl's body found by peat harvesters in a moor near Hannover, Germany. Apparently the remains are in amazing condition (the harvesters called the police, thinking it was a murder victim) and there may be more in the vicinity of the find. There's not much else to the blurb, although there are some photos.

UPDATE: The news is appearing in the German press now. A slightly longer story, evidently relying on the same press release, is here.
UPDATE#2: An English version is available here .
