The Bog People : Iron Age Man Preserved, Paperback Book

The Bog People : Iron Age Man Preserved Paperback


From time to time workers in bogs throughout Europe accidentally expose the sunken bodies of people who died 2000 or more years ago.

The bo g waters have kept the bodies from decay, sometimes even preserving the facial expression at the moment of death, and many of the bodies bear signs of violent ends.

This book seeks to cast light on these Iron Age people, their lives, their religion, and the rituals they performed in unfrequented wood and groves.
