The Medieval Book That Emerged from a Bog After 1200 Years

This is the remarkable story of a medieval book that spent 1200 years in the mud.
Someone had a Book of Psalms made circa 800. It was a portable copy fitted with a leather satchel. The book consisted of sixty sheets of parchment that were carefully filled with handwritten words. Somehow the book ended up in a remote bog at Faddan More in north Tipperary, close to the town of Birr, Ireland.
