The article came out October 31, 2013 which was about a week ago so it is very current. It is about how human bodies were found in a bog in Northern Europe, which is the purpose of the article, and it is relevant and accurate as well because the it discusses the anaerobic environment ofmbogs which sucks the organic material thus preventing decomposition.
