We spoke to a Manchester academic about bog bodies
What a brilliant article, both in the subject matter but the sheer quality of the writing. One of those pieces that had me from the first sentence. Hauntingly beautiful language and I now need to read the book and find out more.
Really enjoyed this Dani and as you know 'my kind of article'.
I wonder if there were ever any stories/folklore surrounding Chat Moss when the Liverpool to Manchester railway was built in 1830? Were the navvies afraid to work there as the rails were laid over the drained Moss.
I have seen Lindow Man in the BM . A strange encounter to say the least and quite unlike anything I've seen before. Yes we're so used to seeing leather on furniture etc but you know it's a human and therefore unsettling .
Fascinating subject. Dani, I love the way your writing demonstrates your real interest in the the people you are interviewing along with their area of expertise. You bring everything to life (although not sure if that’s an appropriate thing to say in this particular case;).
