I have just finished watching the BBC programme ‘4,000-year-Old Cold Case: the Body in the Bog‘. I have also been interested in the bog bodies ever since reading the poems by Seamus Heaney. I haven’t explored the research around the bodies personally but I will any news article or watch any programme on the subject. 

This programme focuses in on the Cashel Man from County Laois, Ireland and gets forensic pathologists and anthropologists archaeologists and other researchers to investigate the body and the peat. There are also glimpses at other bog bodies, including the famous Tollund Man. It’s a very interesting programme and it may even make me go away and look at some research articles surrounding the subject.
