    I’ve always been fascinated by the bog bodies. It is amazing how much detail has been preserved — to the point where some of them were suspected to be recent murders at first! It sheds a bit of light into this mostly unknown, non-literate culture, and possibly the religion of these people, if our interpretation of sacrifice is proven to be correct.
