Our bones are the silent witnesses to the lives we lead. Drawing upon her years of research and a wealth of remarkable experience, the world-renowned forensic anthropologist Dame Sue Black takes us on a journey of revelation. From skull to toe, via the teeth, spine, chest, arms, hands, pelvis, and legs, she delicately reverse engineers events, piecing together the evidence in our remains to discover the details of lives once lived. All that we eat, where we go, everything we do leaves a trace, a message that waits patiently in our bones for the forensic anthropologist to decipher it. Some of this information is easily understood, some holds its secrets tight and needs scientific cajoling to be released. Sue Black’s ‘Written in Bone’ will astonish and amaze as it unravels with intimate sensitivity and compassion the inside story of what we leave behind.
