Co Laois bog body is world's oldest

New tests on the remains of a preserved body found in a Co Laois bog have revealed that it is the oldest bog body ever discovered in the world.

The body was found by a Bord na Móna worker milling peat in 2011.

It was initially believed that the remains were those of a young female which were around 2,500 years old.

However, a series of recent tests have revealed that it is the body of a male, which dates back as far as 2000 BC.
