'The Mysterious Bog People' - Exhibition in Manchester

Whilst at a Cheshire garden centre of all places - not far from Lindow Moss - I stumbled across a flyer for The Museum Of Science & Industry In Manchester's 'The Mysterious Bog People - Ritual & Sacrifice in Ancient Europe exhibition, running from 05 February - 08 May 2005.

It looks like a stunning show, and the website tells us:

"This ground-breaking exhibition charts over 14,000 years of cultural history and contains over 400 artefacts found in the bogs or swamps of northwestern Europe.

This is the ONLY showing in the UK, so don't miss out!
