We are delighted to welcome back University of Aberdeen graduate Professor Dame Sue Black for a virtual event discussing her fascinating career and latest best-selling book, ‘Written in Bone: Hidden Stories in What We Leave Behind’. The event will take place on Thursday 12 November at 6pm (GMT).
Sue Black is a leading forensic anthropologist, anatomist and academic. She has worked on a number of high-profile forensic investigations and identified thousands of victims of war crimes and natural disasters; she has also assisted with the prosecution of perpetrators. She received a police commendation for her work developing new forensic techniques to identify the vein and skin patterns in the hands and forearms, leading to multiple criminal convictions.
Her first bestselling book, ‘All That Remains: A Life in Death’ was awarded the Saltire Book of the Year Award in 2018. Her new book, ‘Written in Bone’ delves deep into the intricacies of human anatomy, as Sue reveals how tiny details found in the human skeleton have impacted many mysteries throughout her career.
Sue will be joined by Professor Greg Gordon, Head of the School of Law, for what promises to be a unique insight into her incredible life. Guests will also have the opportunity to ask questions as part of the event.
Please register below for this event. We will issue and email in advance of the talk with a link to join the session.
