Bog body found in Co Laois could be that of sacrificed king
'All of the other bog bodies were found on significant boundaries. The idea is that because the goddess is the land, by inserting bodies and other items relating to their inauguration as king along the boundaries, it gives form to the goddess.' things were pretty damn gory back then
