Bog oak is basically oak that has been lying in a peat bog for many years. It doesn't rot as there is no oxygen in the bog, so machines and works just like normal oak. When in the bog, the oak changes colour and becomes almost completely black. This bog oak has come from a bog where the wood has been dated to be approximately 4500 years old, so the tree was living when Stonehenge was being built!
