The analysis of human remains provides a lot of information about a person’s past, as well as the period in which they live in. This talk covers how forensic anthropologists analyse human skeletons to help identify the dead from mass disasters and mass grave scenarios in particular.

Dr Nicholas Marquez-Grant is Senior Lecturer in Forensic Anthropology at Cranfield University and one of only a few practicing forensic anthropologies in the UK. He has helped the police in many forensic cases in England and Wales.
