Wow, that was a fantastic story. I love how much you imply rather than state out-right, and the way you capture the rhythms of the dialogue that fit your setting. It's so vivid, and creepy, and hopeful, and surprising, and just really, really, great.

I'm not good at expressing in print when I am grinning really happily! Thank you!

I have no idea if you want to read more about the topic, but I've heard good things about 'Bog Bodies Uncovered' by Miranda Aldhouse-Green.

I absolutely do. I'm trying right now to track down Michael Almereyda's Trance/The Eternal (1998), a highly recommended horror movie with a bog body. Also I did eventually read Glob's The Bog People: my parents thoughtfully presented it to me for my birthday.

It won an award last year from the Society of American Archaeologists, which is where I came across it, and it's on my own to-read list.

Cool. Thanks for the recommendation!
