When an archaeologist is sent to excavate the remains of a bog body - an Iron Age corpse naturally preserved in Ireland’s peat bog lands - he discovers the dead returned to life. Inheriting the ecological memories of the landscape it has been immersed in, the bog body urges The Archaeologist to open his eyes; to confront the impending storm of Climate Change or face inevitable extinction.
