The morbid side of things will always fascinate us! Come along and learn about forensic investigations of skeletal remains, and the macabre experiences of holidaying to sites of death and suffering.

A Skeletal Story

Rhys Williams (Lecturer in Forensic Science)
The police have called; an unidentified body has been discovered in the woods. What do we do? What can we discover from a skeleton once someone dies? This talk will explore different aspects of identity that we can learn from skeletal remains using forensic anthropology. Dead men do tell tales!

The Darker Side of Travel

Beverley Boden (Head of Department (Finance, Performance & Marketing))
When we think of tourism, we tend to think of embarking on a city break, relaxing on a tropical beach. But, there’s a new type of tourism for something different, something macabre, something that will question your very existence. Visiting the site of an air crash, Nazi Death Camp, a cemetery or even 25 Cromwell Street is not on everyone’s bucket list, but millions are dying to experience them!
