Thanks to "Corambis," now, whenever I hear of Bog Mummies, I think of the book. Which adds an interesting fannish layer to something I was already interested in. Anyway, thought some of you might enjoy this article about Bog Mummies http://www.thehistoryblog.com/archives/17961 . Basically, intentional (as opposed to folks who just fell in the bogs and got burried) Bog Mummies and Crouch Burials in general (because they may have soaked in the bog a bit first) may be composites-- cobbled together from different people, not just one person. So... not directly related to Monette's work, but still possibly relevant to interests here.

Interesting article! That's pretty cool. Makes you wonder why they replaced parts... did the parts of the original body get damaged, or was there some ritual or spiritual significance in having a composite mummy? We'll probably never know, but it's interesting to ponder...

Oooh. Love to hear about bog mummies. I'd never heard of them being Frankensteined before. Fascinating!
