The Series

In the 2022 RI Christmas Lectures Sue Black, the UK's leading forensic anthropologist, shares the secrets of the real-life scientific detective process she uses to identify both the dead and the living. 

She'll reveal why we shouldn't believe everything we see in our favourite TV crime dramas; and using key cases from her remarkable career, she'll explore the huge leaps forward forensic science has made as well as some of its limitation - plus what the future might hold.
