Despite the seemingly spooky title of this site, visitors should not be afraid of entering and exploring around the contents of this very interactive site. Created through a collaborative partnership between organizations such as the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Drents Museum, this site concerns itself with the artifacts and material world created by the so-called "bogpeople" of northwestern Europe who lived approximately 10,000 years ago. Visitors can explore their world through sections that include "Science", "Timeline", "Profile" and "Mediatheatre". The "Mediatheatre" section is a good place to start as visitors can view short film clips that cover the mysteries of the bog, fishing with a harpoon, and the fabled Ubbena wheel. Moving along, the "Timeline" area gives some nice chronological context to the events and transformations covered by the site, and the "Science" area includes some insights into what archaeologists do in the field.
