High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Bog bodies, which are
also known as bog people, are the naturally preserved human corpses
found in the sphagnum bogs in Northern Europe. Unlike most ancient
human remains, bog bodies have retained their skin and internal
organs due to the unusual conditions of the surrounding area. These
conditions include highly acidic water, low temperature, and a lack
of oxygen, combining to preserve but severely tan their skin.
Despite the fact that their skin is preserved, their bones are
generally not, as the acid in the peat dissolves the calcium
phosphate of bone.
