Establishing the identity of a body is one of the most important aspects in a forensic case. You will be introduced to a variety of principles used in human identification. This will include techniques such as DNA and fingerprints, as well as those lesser known and the methods used where decomposed or partial remains are recovered, such as in fires or cases of mass disasters. The lecture is aimed at audiences 16+ due to sensitive content but those younger may attend with a parent/guardian
