Glob Girls

Forty years ago a book was published that was to give archaeology its first push out of dry and dusty academe towards the popularity it enjoys today: The Bog People, by PV Glob, about the extraordinary Iron Age bodies found in Danish peat bogs.

Archaeologist Christine Finn discovers that the book may never have been written if it hadn't been for a group of convent school girls from Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
