Mummies: Bog Bodies (2003)

Episode 1
Only available in Canada, United States

Under dark peaty waters lie buried the secrets of history. In Bog Bodies we travel around this world to bring the most amazing examples of preserved humanity back to life, through their corpses and the stories that they tell.

Over the last few hundred years, the remains of ancient humans have been discovered during peat-cutting operations across Europe. Men, women and children have all been released from their death sites, dating from 8,000 BCE to the early medieval period.

Because of the remarkable preservative effects of peat, many of these bodies have provided such detailed information that we are able to accurately reconstruct facial features, body types and clothing styles. But also in that detail is the gruesome evidence pointing to common signs of violence that makes these finds unusual.

Bosie Vincent, Chris Warren
