Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Conceived as a detective story of sorts, "The Bog People" is a fascinating account of the religion, culture, and daily life of Iron Age Europe as revealed when a well-preserved body is found in a Danish bog.

About the Author

P.V. Glob (1911–1985) was the Director General of Museums and Antiquities for the State of Denmark and Director of the National Museum in Copenhagen. Although his professional interest took him from Greenland to the Arabian Gulf, his most sustained study was of his native country. In addition to The Bog People, Glob published numerous anthropological works including Denmark: An Archaeological History from the Stone Age to the Vikings and Mound People: Danish Bronze-Age Man Preserved.

Elizabeth Wayland Barber received her Ph.D. from Yale University in 1968. Her research and publications focus on various aspects of anthropology and language. She teaches archaeology and linguistics at Occidental College.

Paul T. Barber received his Ph.D. from Yale University in 1968. He is a research associate at the Fowler Museum of Cultural History at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Joshua Okrent, January 5, 2011 (view all comments by Joshua Okrent)
A compulsively readable introductory archaeology course, taught by an eccentric and enthusiastic professor, about the ancient bodies discovered in Denmark’s peat bogs. Though the book is replete with archeological details, it is also rich with Iron Age poetry, mythology and truly amazing photographs.
