Most of the bog bodies discovered showed some aspects of decay or else were not properly conserved. When such specimens are exposed to the normal atmosphere, they may begin to decompose rapidly.

As a result, many specimens have been effectively destroyed. As of , the number of specimens that have been preserved following discovery was The oldest bog body that has been identified is the Koelbjerg Man from Denmark, who has been dated to BCE, during the Mesolithic period.

Around BCE, [15] agriculture was introduced to Denmark, either through cultural exchange or by migrating farmers, marking the beginning of the Neolithic in the region.

The vast majority of the bog bodies that have been discovered date from the Iron Age , a period of time when peat bogs covered a much larger area of northern Europe.

Many of these Iron Age bodies bear a number of similarities, indicating a known cultural tradition of killing and depositing these people in a certain manner.

These Pre-Roman Iron Age peoples lived in sedentary communities, who had built villages, and whose society was hierarchical.

They were agriculturalists , raising animals in captivity as well as growing crops. In some parts of northern Europe, they also fished. Although independent of the Roman Empire , which dominated southern Europe at this time, the inhabitants traded with the Romans.

For these people, the bogs held some sort of liminal significance, and indeed, they placed into them votive offerings intended for the Otherworld, often of neck-rings , wristlets or ankle-rings made of bronze or more rarely gold.

The archaeologist P. Glob believed that these were "offerings to the gods of fertility and good fortune.

Many bog bodies show signs of being stabbed , bludgeoned , hanged or strangled , or a combination of these methods. In some cases the individual had been beheaded.

In the case of the Osterby Man found at Kohlmoor, near Osterby , Germany in , the head had been deposited in the bog without its body.

Usually, the corpses were naked, sometimes with some items of clothing with them, particularly headgear. The clothing is believed to have decomposed while in the bog for so long.

According to the archaeologist P. Glob , "this probably indicates the wish to pin the dead man firmly into the bog. Some bog bodies, such as Tollund Man from Denmark, have been found with the rope used to strangle them still around their necks.

Some, such as the Yde Girl in the Netherlands and bog bodies in Ireland, had the hair on one side of their heads closely cropped, although this could be due to one side of their head being exposed to oxygen for a longer period of time than the other.

Some of the bog bodies seem consistently to have been members of the upper class: their fingernails are manicured, and tests on hair protein routinely record good nutrition.

Strabo records that the Celts practiced auguries on the entrails of human victims: on some bog bodies, such as the Weerdinge Men found in the northern Netherlands, the entrails have been partly drawn out through incisions.

Modern techniques of forensic analysis now suggest that some injuries, such as broken bones and crushed skulls, were not the result of torture, but rather due to the weight of the bog.

However, a CT scan of Grauballe Man by Danish scientists determined his skull was fractured due to pressure from the bog long after his death.

Amongst the most recent, the corpse of Meenybradden Woman found in Ireland dates to the 16th century and was found in unhallowed ground, with evidence indicating that she may have committed suicide and was therefore buried in the bog rather than in the churchyard because she had committed a Christian sin.

A number of skeletons found in Florida have been called "bog people". These skeletons are the remains of people buried in peat between 5, and 8, years ago, during the Early and Middle Archaic period in the Americas.

The peat at the Florida sites is loosely consolidated and much wetter than in European bogs. As a result, the skeletons are well preserved, but skin and most internal organs have not been preserved.

An exception is that preserved brains have been found in nearly skulls at Windover Archaeological Site and in one of several burials at Little Salt Spring.

Textiles were also preserved with some of the burials, the oldest known textiles in Florida. Archaeologists believe that early Archaic Native Americans buried the bodies in a freshwater pond when the sea level was much lower.

The peat in the ponds helped preserve the skeletons. Ever since the Iron Age, humans have used the bogs to harvest peat , a common fuel source.

On various occasions throughout history, peat diggers have come across bog bodies. Records of such finds go back as far as the 17th century, and in a bog body was discovered at Shalkholz Fen in Holstein , Germany.

This was possibly the first-ever such discovery recorded. The first more fully documented account of the discovery of a bog body was at a peat bog on Drumkeragh Mountain in County Down , Ireland ; it was published by Elizabeth Rawdon, Countess of Moira , [33] the wife of the local landowner.

On 8 May Fresson's company began its first scheduled service between Inverness, Wick, and Kirkwall. The field was improved with hard runways, hangars, and other buildings, and became one of fourteen airfields ranging from Iceland to North Yorkshire administered by No.

Pilots flying from Wick engaged in reconnaissance, anti-submarine patrols, convoy escort, defence of Scapa Flow , and strikes against the Germans in Norway and Norwegian waters.

The plane most frequently used was the Lockheed Hudson. In May , Wick came under frequent air attack after the defeat of the Netherlands and Denmark and the occupation of Norway left Wick more vulnerable, and their defence of Scapa Flow and the harbour area made them a target.

It is stated that high explosives were dropped on Caithness, and that Wick proper was attacked six times. The first and most serious bombing was on 1 July , when a bomb fell on Bank Row during daytime hours when children were playing outside, the first daytime bombing in the UK.

Fifteen people were killed, eight of them children. In , a writer described the town of Wick this way: [41]. The burgh of Wick, a small toun of little trade, lyes on the east end of the church and north side of the water, where it runs into the sea, and before it, is a bay formed more than a mile in breadth between the Head of Wick on the north and the Head of Old Wick on the south with a harbour at the end of the toun to which ships of between 20 and 30 last burden can come in safely.

There is a bridge at the toun of Wick for the convenience of the parish of eleven pillars built with loose stones and only timber laid over them. They are maintained by the south side of the parish for carrying them to the church, the water being broad there by the swelling of the tide.

In , Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson stayed in Wick while his uncle, Alan Stevenson , a lighthouse engineer, was overseeing the construction of Noss Head Lighthouse , which opened in He wrote a letter to his mother describing the town: [42] [43].

Wick lies at the end or elbow of an open triangular bay, hemmed on either side by shores, either cliff or steep earth-bank, of no great height.

The grey houses of Pulteney extend along the southerly shore almost to the cape; and it is about half-way down this shore — no, six-sevenths way down — that the new breakwater extends athwart the bay.

Certainly Wick in itself possesses no beauty: bare, grey shores, grim grey houses, grim grey sea; not even the gleam of red tiles; not even the greenness of a tree.

The southerly heights, when I came here, were black with people, fishers waiting on wind and night. Now all the S. Stornoway boats have beaten out of the bay, and the Wick men stay indoors or wrangle on the quays with dissatisfied fish-curers, knee-high in brine, mud, and herring refuse.

The day when the boats put out to go home to the Hebrides, the girl here told me there was 'a black wind'; and on going out, I found the epithet as justifiable as it was picturesque.

A cold, BLACK southerly wind, with occasional rising showers of rain; it was a fine sight to see the boats beat out a-teeth of it.

In Wick I have never heard any one greet his neighbour with the usual 'Fine day' or 'Good morning. The streets are full of the Highland fishers, lubberly, stupid, inconceivably lazy and heavy to move.

You bruise against them, tumble over them, elbow them against the wall — all to no purpose; they will not budge; and you are forced to leave the pavement every step.

To the south, however, is as fine a piece of coast scenery as I ever saw. Great black chasms, huge black cliffs, rugged and over- hung gullies, natural arches, and deep green pools below them, almost too deep to let you see the gleam of sand among the darker weed: there are deep caves too.

In one of these lives a tribe of gipsies. From morning to evening the great villainous-looking fellows are either sleeping off the last debauch, or hulking about the cove 'in the horrors.

But they just live among heaped boulders, damp with continual droppings from above, with no more furniture than two or three tin pans, a truss of rotten straw, and a few ragged cloaks.

In winter the surf bursts into the mouth and often forces them to abandon it. The town lies on the estuary of the Wick River , spanned by two road bridges.

It stands instead of the earlier Service Bridge. Pulteney town is now an area of Wick on the south side of the River Wick.

Until Pulteney town was administered separately from the Royal Burgh of Wick. In the early years of the 19th century Sir William commissioned Britain 's leading civil engineer , Thomas Telford , to design and supervise the creation of a major new herring fishing town and harbour at the estuary of the River Wick.

Pulteneytown was so named after the death of Sir William in and became a major player in the 19th century herring boom. It was built in order to supply work to the Gaels evicted during the Highland Clearances.

History of this era is preserved in the collections of Wick Heritage Museum. Lower Pulteney was primarily a working area, built on a sandbank behind the harbour.

Upper Pulteney was primarily a residential area, on higher ground. Additional hall accommodation has been added and the main church completely renovated to a very high standard for the needs of a twenty-first century congregation.

Services are held twice every Sunday. The Old Pulteney whisky distillery is in the Pulteneytown area. The first Caithness Glass factory was also in this area, [48] but Caithness Glass has now left both the town and Caithness.

Wick Bay is an isosceles triangle with the river mouth as its apex, and the points of South Head and North Head, separated by about one kilometre, as the base of the triangle.

Beyond the heads lies the North Sea. Pentland Firth line about 11 kilometres north of North Head. There are three harbours in Wick, the Outer Harbour, the Inner Harbour, and the River Harbour, all of which are formed and protected by breakwaters.

The Outer and Inner Harbours are on the south side of the estuary, divided from the River Harbour by a breakwater.

Wick Inner Harbour now has an extensive marina complex, and is fast becoming a base for leisure boating. It is also now a well known stopping point for visiting pleasure craft.

In a storm battered the harbour, causing extensive damage. Historical [53] and current maps of Wick are available online.

Wick has an oceanic climate Köppen Cfb , encompassing a narrow temperature range, low sunshine levels and high winds. Wick has history as a royal burgh dating from In , under the Local Government Scotland Act , the local government burgh was merged into the Caithness district of the two-tier Highland region.

In , under the Local Government etc Scotland Act , the district was abolished and the region became a unitary council area.

From until , the town of Wick was covered by two or three wards , each electing one councillor by the first past the post system of election.

This year, a single Wick ward was created to elect three councillors by the single transferable vote system. The new ward is one of three within the Highland Council 's Caithness ward management area and one of seven within the council's Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross corporate management area.

There is also the Royal Burgh of Wick Community Council, [61] which was created in , after the local government burgh had been abolished in The community council is not a tier of local government but it is recognised as a level of statutory representation.

The community council represents an area which is much smaller than that represented by ward councillors, and the ward area also includes parts of other community council areas.

Wick is within the former civil parish of Wick. The parish has that of Latheron to the south, those of Watten and Bower to the west, and that of Canisbay to the north.

The eastern boundary of the parish is Moray Firth coastline. Wick was a parliamentary burgh , combined with Dingwall , Dornoch , Kirkwall and Tain in the Northern Burghs constituency of the House of Commons of the Parliament of Great Britain from to and of the Parliament of the United Kingdom from to Cromarty was added to the list in The constituency was a district of burghs known also as Tain Burghs until , and then as Wick Burghs.

It was represented by one Member of Parliament. A specialist glass manufacturer was established in Wick in Production was progressively moved to Perth between and Manufacturing in Wick thus ceased and the physical connection with Caithness was severed.

The Old Pulteney Distillery is an aging malt whisky production facility in Pulteneytown. The distillery has a visitor centre in Huddart Street, and produces the Old Pulteney Single Malt whisky at a number of ages.

The distillery was established in when Pulteneytown was quite newly established as a herring fishing port. Barley was brought in by sea, and the whisky was shipped out the same way.

At that time many of the distillery workers were also fishermen. Old Pulteney is promoted as a Highland single malt Scotch. Ignis Wick Ltd operates the district heating scheme in Wick, and provides heat and hot water via underground insulated pipes to nearly homes from a central boiler house.

Operations are based at the Old Pulteney distillery in Wick. The council initiated the scheme, with origins evident in minutes of 16 December meeting of the council's Caithness committee.

It was planned, originally, as a biomass-fuelled combined heat and power scheme, producing mains grid electricity as well as heat. The CHaP company was formed on 7 July , [66] as a non-profit company with three directors, representing the council, the Pulteneytown People's Project charity, and the distillery owners.

The biomass gasification plant failed to work as intended, however, and what had been planned as temporary use of fossil-oil plant became a longer term arrangement.

Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, when such bodies were discovered, they were often removed from the bogs and given a Christian burial on consecrated church ground in keeping with the religious beliefs of the community who found them, who often assumed that they were relatively modern.

With the rise of antiquarianism in the 19th century, some people began to speculate that many of the bog bodies were not recent murder victims but were ancient in origin.

In , at Corselitze on Falster in Denmark, a bog body unusually buried with ornaments seven glass beads and a bronze pin was unearthed and subsequently given a Christian burial.

By order of the Crown Prince Frederick , who was an antiquarian, the body was dug up again and sent to the National Museum of Denmark.

Glob, it was "he, more than anyone else, [who] helped to arouse the wide interest in Danish antiquities" such as the bog bodies. This view was disputed by the archaeologist J.

Worsaae , who argued that the body was Iron Age in origin, like most bog bodies, and predated any historical persons by at least years. His body was subsequently smoked as an early attempt at conservation and put on display in a museum.

Until the midth century, it was not readily apparent at the time of discovery whether a body had been buried in a bog for years, decades, or centuries.

But, modern forensic and medical technologies such as radiocarbon dating have been developed that allow researchers to more closely determine the age of the burial, the person's age at death, and other details.

Scientists have been able to study the skin of the bog bodies, reconstruct their appearance and even determine what their last meal was from their stomach contents since peat marsh preserves soft internal tissue.

Their teeth also indicate their age at death and what type of food they ate throughout their lifetime. Forensic facial reconstruction is one technique used in studying the bog bodies.

Originally designed for identifying modern faces in crime investigations, this technique is a way of working out the facial features of a person by the shape of their skull.

Yde Girl and her modern reconstruction are displayed at the Drents Museum in Assen. Hundreds of bog bodies have been recovered and studied.

In , the German scientist Alfred Dieck catalogued more than 1, bog bodies, but later scholarship revealed much of the Dieck's work was erroneous, and an exact number of discovered bodies is unknown.

Several bog bodies are notable for the high quality of their preservation and the substantial research by archaeologists and forensic scientists.

There is evidence that the site was occupied before the present castle was built. All that remains today is a tall tower sitting on the very edge of the cliffs, about half a mile south of Wick Bay and of the modern town of Wick, but originally the castle had at least 4 stories as well as extra buildings containing workshops and other quarters.

During the 14th century it was owned by Sir Reginald de Cheyne who was a supporter of Edward I during his attempt to establish John Balliol as King of Scotland , although there is no evidence of a battle having taken place there.

It was abandoned in the 18th century. The museum is run by the Wick Society, with a strong focus on the herring-boom era of Wick's history.

The herring trade relied on the export of cured herring to the Continent in particular, Stettin and St Petersburg and languished after the First World War.
