The remarkably preserved contents of the graves first came to light nearly two centuries ago. Mr. Glob's entertaining account of the subsequent excavations and of the sophisticated civilization they reveal is strikingly illusbated with photographs of the landscape, the graves, and the gravegoods. The Mound People, like the Bog People, have been preserved up to the present day by the tanning action of the bog water that surrounded the mounds. Unlike their Iron~Age kin, the Mound People were aristocrats buried fully clothed in heavy oak coffins and amply supplied with ornaments and weapons of gold and bronze, Combining his usual flair for anecdote with impeccable archaeological detail, Mr. Glob describes the findings and weaves from them the colorful story of a prosperous society that flourished in northern Europe 1200 years before Christ.
