Written In Bone : hidden stories in what we leave behind
What we eat, where we go, everything we do leaves a trace, a message that waits patiently for months, years, sometimes centuries, until a forensic anthropologist is called upon to decipher it. Some of this information is easily understood, some holds its secrets tight and needs scientific cajoling to be released. But by carefully piecing together the evidence, the facts of a life can be rebuilt.
Limb by limb, case by case – some criminal, some historical, some unaccountably bizarre – Sue Black reconstructs with intimate sensitivity and compassion the hidden stories in what we leave behind. Praise for Sue Black: ‘Utterly gripping’ – The Guardian ‘Fascinating’ – The Sunday Times ‘Moving’ – Scotsman ‘Engrossing’ – Financial Times
