Durham Book Festival is delighted to welcome Professor Dame Sue Black, one of the world’s leading forensic anthropologists, to discuss her book All That Remains: A Life in Death. This gripping memoir was featured on BBC Radio 4’s Start the Week and provides a fascinating look at death – its causes, our attitudes toward it, and the forensic scientist’s way of analysing it.

Sue’s expertise has been crucial to many high-profile criminal cases, and in 1999 she headed the British forensic team’s exhumation of mass graves in Kosovo. She has been a guest on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, and in 2016 was appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire for services to forensic anthropology.

Chaired by Claire Malcolm, New Writing North
