Buried In a Bog (County Cork series Book 1) Kindle Edition

A bog body is a human cadaver that has been naturally mummified in a peat bog . Such bodies, sometimes known as bog people , are both geographically and chronologically widespread, having been dated to between 8000 BCE and the Second World War . [1] The unifying factor of the bog bodies is that they have been found in peat and are partially preserved; however, the actual levels of preservation vary widely from perfectly preserved to mere skeletons. [2]

Unlike most ancient human remains, bog bodies have retained their skin and internal organs due to the unusual conditions of the surrounding area. These conditions include highly acidic water , low temperature , and a lack of oxygen , and combine to preserve but severely tan their skin. While the skin is well-preserved, the bones are generally not, due to the acid in the peat having dissolved the calcium phosphate of bone.

The German scientist Alfred Dieck published a catalog of more than 1,850 bog bodies that he had counted between 1939 and 1986 [4] [5] but most were unverified by documents or archaeological finds; [6] and a 2002 analysis of Dieck's work by German archaeologists concluded that much of his work was unreliable.

Good book. This is the first one in the series. The author does a good job describing Ireland. I felt like I was there as I read the book.

A pleasant read even though some of the coincidences seemed a bit of a stretch. I like Maura and enjoyed her experiences discovering family when she thought she had lost her only relative, getting to know a new place and finding somewhere she might actually fit in.
