I am watching Nova’s episode of “Ghosts of Murdered Kings” tonight. I remember when I went to Ireland about eight years ago. While there, I saw the Bog People in a museum in Dublin. It was interesting how well preserved they were. Also interesting was the fact that they and I were wearing the same type of shoes! The only pair of shoes I took to Ireland were my Renaissance moccasins. Coincidentally, they are based on the shoes that the Bog People wore. I looked at their feet, and then down at my own. Then back at their feet. For a brief moment, I felt connected to these people and to their history.
