This is a list of bog bodies in order of the country in which they were discovered.
Bog bodies, or bog people are the naturally preserved corpses of humans and some animals recovered from peat bogs.
The bodies have been most commonly found in the Northern European countries of Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and Ireland.
Reports of bog bodies surfaced during the early 1700s.
It is uncertain if the body had been clothed at the time it had been deposited, because clothing made of plant materials such as flax fibers can be dissolved by the acidic peat.
In addition, there were other objects found with her: half a clay pot on the knees of the corpse, and half a humerus and half a radius of a human infant beside her.
Around the neck of the bog body was a leather belt with an amber bead and a brass disk 22-23 millimeters in diameter.
Over the hair was a bonnet, which was made using a sprang technique. The bog body was lying face down at a depth of two feet on a base of birch bark.
Unlike some bog bodies, she was found with other garments. In the immediate vicinity were birch branches, directly on the body of three approximately 10-centimeter-long birch poles of the same thickness. The right leg was broken ten inches below the knee, which was caused by the weight of peat on the body.
The body was naked, but the lower body and legs were covered by a cloak made of a four layered twill fabric and by a fringed shawl.
These two articles of clothing are now on display at the National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen.
