Laying out human remains

This short film shows bioarchaeologist Charlotte Roberts laying out human remains for display. It is a different way of introducing museum visitors to our work. People are often fascinated to see this process in action and here we have also inset a guide to what different bones in the skeleton can tell us. Don’t worry, even Charlotte doesn’t work this fast. The film has been speeded up!

The film was made for a larger screen. If you want to read the annotations to the film, please open the PDF below.
