P.V. Glob (1911-1985) was the Director General of Museums and
Antiquities for the State of Denmark and Director of the National
Museum in Copenhagen. Although his professional interest took him
from Greenland to the Arabian Gulf, his most sustained study was of
his native country. In addition to The Bog People, Glob
published numerous anthropological works including Denmark: An
Archaeological History from the Stone Age to the Vikings and
Mound People: Danish Bronze-Age Man Preserved.

A fascinating account of the discoveries and of what they tell us
about the life and death of the Iron Age people.

Glob deserves gratitude not only for preserving these astonishing underground survivors physically, but for a fascinating exposition of their way of life.

A splendid book, full of detail and fascination not only for the specialist, who would indeed benefit from reading it, but for anyone interested in the techniques and results of first-rate archaeological research.
