TITLE: Bog Bodies Uncovered: Solving Europe's Ancient Mystery
AUTHOR: Miranda Aldhouse-Green
DATE PUBLISHED: 2015
Miranda Aldhouse-Green takes a look at the mystery of the bog bodies: how and where they were discovered; the world the bog people lived in; crime scene investigation of the bodies, how bog environments preserve bodies; whether the bog bodies were accident execution or murder victims; the ways they were killed; who might have done the deeds; and why this was done.
The book is interesting and informative, with a great deal of research/references and many photographs. However, there is also a great deal of speculation, repetition and no definitive answers. In short, we don't know much about the bog bodies other than the manner of their deaths, but there is a great deal of speculation, and most certainly no solving of any mystery. Did I mention all the repetition?
