DUBLIN, July 25 (2006) -- Irish archaeologists Tuesday heralded the discovery of an ancient book of psalms by a construction worker who spotted something while working in a bog.
The approximately 20-page book has been dated to 800-1000 A.D. Trinity College manuscripts expert Bernard Meehan said it was the first discovery of an Irish early medieval document in two centuries.
The book has about 20 pages and a thick leather cover. The man who found it covered it again with damp earth to keep it from drying out. (National Museum Of Ireland Via Associated Press)
"This is really a miracle find," said Pat Wallace, director of the National Museum of Ireland.
"There\'s two sets of odds that make this discovery really way out. First of all, it\'s unlikely that something this fragile could survive being buried in a bog at all, and then for it to be unearthed and spotted before it was destroyed is incalculably more amazing."
He said an engineer was digging up bog land last week to create commercial potting soil in Ireland\'s midlands when, "just beyond the bucket of his bulldozer, he spotted something." Wallace would not specify where the book was found because a team of archaeologists is still exploring the site.
"The owner of the bog has had dealings with us in the past and is very much in favor of archaeological discovery and reporting it," Wallace said.
Crucially, he said, the bog owner covered up the book with damp soil. Had it been left exposed overnight, he said, "it could have dried out and just vanished, blown away."
The book was found opened to a page describing, in Latin script, Psalm 83, in which God hears complaints of other nations\' attempts to wipe out the name of Israel.
Wallace said several experts spent Tuesday analyzing only that page -- the number of letters on each line, lines on each page, size of page -- and the book\'s binding and cover, which he described as "leather vellum, very thick wallet in appearance."
It could take months of study, he said, just to identify the safest way to pry open the pages without damaging or destroying them.
Ireland has several other holy books from the early medieval period, including the ornately illustrated Book of Kells, which has been on display at Trinity College in Dublin since the 19th century.
And they shall not take of thee a stone for a corner, nor a stone for foundations; but thou shalt be desolate for ever, saith the LORD. (KJV Jeremiah 51:26 )

The Seven Years were 570 B.C. to 563 B.C., a time after Nebudcadnezzar’s Egyptian Campaign when no events are recorded till his 43rd year of reign. His madness was from his 35th to his 42nd year. This sabbatic period of madness lasted 2569 days from 9/11/570 B.C. to 9/23/563 B.C., and corresponds to the exact number of years that Babylon "is not" in power (539/538 B.C. to 2030/2031 A.D.)
