Our bones are the silent witnesses to the lives we lead. Our stories are marbled into their marrow. Drawing upon years of research and a wealth of experience, forensic anthropologist Dame Sue Black takes us on a journey of revelation. From skull to feet, she shows that each part of us has a tale to tell. Limb by limb, case by case - some criminal, some historical, some unaccountably bizarre - she reconstructs with intimate sensitivity and compassion the hidden stories in what we leave behind.
