Who speaks for the dead? A forensic anthropologist’s tale
Forensic anthropology is a science associated with identity. There is a misconception that the subject is solely about identification from bones, but professor Sue Black will show us that there are many aspects of identity from the human body that relate as much to the living as they do to the dead.
Whether this is the identification of perpetrators of crime, helping victims to remember their identity or working with aid agencies to assist those who are unable to prove their identity – it is clear that the world of forensic anthropology is a lot more than a pile of old bones.
