This four-day innovative course is an opportunity to study and practice scientific techniques of body location, recovery and analysis. A series of seminars, hands-on laboratory sessions and fieldwork (involving experience of remote sensing techniques and ‘body’ excavation) will see attendees improve efficiency, and crucially, maximise forensic intelligence recovery at relevant scenes of crime.
The course will be delivered by leading academics with practitioner experience from the universities of Teesside and Durham who have complementary and world-leading expertise in bone chemistry, skeletal analysis, excavation and forensic science. The Centre for Forensic Investigation, Teesside University has a long history of excellence in forensic and crime scene teaching and research, and currently provide training and education for police forces, including the MET. The Department of Archaeology, Durham University has an international reputation for archaeological and skeletal research and practice and is the highest ranking archaeology department in terms of research in the UK.
