In 2003, a bog body, wearing an arm-ring was discovered in a peat bog from the townland of
Oldcroghan, County Offaly.

The body was radiocarbon dated between 392 BC to 201 BC (Mulhall
2008).

After Oldcroghan Man was removed from the bog, a plan for the conservation treatment of
his arm-ring was devised.
