Good Grooming Shows in Irish Bog People

A study of Irish bog burials shows that the well-preserved bodies were well-groomed at the time of their internment, with manicured fingernails and gelled hair.

The hundreds of Iron Age bodies discovered over the years in Ireland prove that life may not have been as "nasty, brutish and short" as once thought since at least one of the men had a mohawk haircut held in place with imported hair gel.
