Glob Girls

Thursday 9 February 2006 20:10-20:30 (Radio 3)

Forty years ago, a book was published that was to give archaeology its first push out of a dry and dusty academic world towards the popularity it enjoys today: The Bog People, by PV Glob.

It was 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 in Suffolk.

Duration:

20 minutes
