Bog Clothes

More old clothes, found in an Irish  bog (Ulster Museum)
In 1956, this doublet / jacket was found by a farm worker in bog land at Dungiven, near Derry/ Londonderry,  with tartan trews (trousers) a mantle (cloak) and a leather belt. There was no sign of a body....the costume was dated to 1560- 1650, when the land lay in the Gaelic O'Cahan Lordship...
