I thought that I was interested in this topic Miranda Aldhouse Green ‘s Bog Bodies Uncovered Solving Europe’s Ancient Mystery pointed out to me how very violent the deaths were of the bog bodies found mostly in the 20th Century As I read this book I became truly horrified at how these victims died Men women and even children were killed in the most hideous ways but then many were placed carefully in bogs in North Germany Jutland Denmark NW England and Ireland and some of these burials were marked by sticks as though the people who had buried these poor souls wanted to remember where the burials were Some may have been buried alive by being pinned down in a bog with particular kind of sticks being placed all the way around the body so the person could not move It appears that every victim was also humiliated in some way by being tied up head shaved and striped naked or even worse I also do not feel the author ‘solved’ this ancient mysteryYes she illuminated the topic but did not solved it as to why it was done The bog bodies of this book that have been found are mostly from the Iron Age of Europe whose dates vary from 1600 BC 800 AD I extremely doubt that I will ever read about bog bodies again
