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.
