This piece of oak wood is named such as it has been buried in a peat bog for hundreds to thousands of years.  The low levels of oxygen has protected the wood from decay. Other peat conditions- the presence of iron salts and other minerals- react with the tannin in the wood giving it its distinct dark brown to black colour. Bog oak is highly valuable due to its rarity.
