The fur cape of a boy was found in 1922 along with the bog corpse of the Kayhauser bog, south of Bad Zwischenahn. The lower leg and the feet were wrapped inside the cape. The cape itself had been made out of four neatly sewn pieces of calfskin. At the Neck opening it had a narrow leathertie which was pulled through small loops to pull the neck opening tight. The cape is dated in the time around 364 b.C..
