'Bog men' on display in Dublin

Iron Age men found buried in peat bogs are on display at the National Museum in Dublin (Ireland). The 'Kingship & Sacrifice - An exhibition of bog bodies and related finds' display has been officially opened by Arts Minister John O'Donoghue.
     The ancient human remains were found in a preserved state in 2003 at Oldcroghan, Co Offaly and Clonycavan, Co Meath. A team of international specialists helped the National Museum to study the artefacts. The exhibition explores the theory that the bog men were the victims of sovereignty and kingship rituals during the Iron Age. Objects on display will include horse trappings, weapons, feasting utensils and textiles. Admission to the exhibition at the National Museum on Kildare Street is free.
