Documentary Description

Timewatch producer John Hayes Fisher describes the astonishing and important discovery of two rare preserved bodies in the peat bogs of Ireland. What's it they say about waiting for a bus? All of a sudden three come along at once. Well it's a bit like this with bog bodies - ancient human remains preserved by the unique chemical composition of peat bogs. It has been 20 years since the last bog body was found, at Lindow Moss in Cheshire. Then in 2003, two turned up in Ireland within the space of three months. A bog body find is an archaeological sensation, but Timewatch quickly secured exclusive access, preventing the news from leaking out to the wider world. It is with huge trepidation that I head off to the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin to meet the team into whose hands the two bog bodies have come.
