The Ballgudden Woman was found in a bog in Northern Ireland in 1831. The body was determined to have had blonde hair. Unusually, the remains of an infant of unknown gender were found beside her body, in a skeletonized state.

Studies

Because of the early date of the find, no preservation methods were in place, and both bodies have since been destroyed and are lost.
