Postaday 2011: I Learned That There Were Bog People

I learned that there were “Bog People” dug up in Ireland during the Troubles – and perhaps at other times – I am not sure. They were a couple of thousand years old and very well preserved. The bogs inspired a lot of Seamus Heaney poetry, such as  “Punishment”.

I did not know this before.
