Ancient ‘Bog Bodies’ To Be Revealed In Talk

December 22, 2016

Evidence of ancient burial rites and the sacrifice of kings are to be revealed at Seamus Heaney HomePlace in a talk about the prehistoric bodies perfectly preserved in the bog lands across Europe
The unforgettable images of bog bodies haunted Seamus Heaney’s work and in the first talk of the centre’s new 2017 season, Eamonn Kelly, a leading world expert on bog bodies and former Head of Antiquities at the National Museum of Ireland, will be exploring these fascinating figures and asking what they have to teach us about our past.

‘Bog Bodies’ takes place on Saturday 14 January at 3pm. Tickets priced £5 are available from Seamus Heaney HomePlace, Tel: 028 7938 7444 or by clicking here.
