Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from the author of critically acclaimed Sunday Times bestseller, All That Remains, and ask her questions about her career as a human anatomist and forensic anthropologist.

Drawing upon her years of research and a wealth of remarkable experience, Sue Black takes us on a journey of revelation. She shows that each part of our body has a tale to tell. What we eat, where we go, everything we do leaves a trace, a message that waits patiently for months, years, sometimes centuries, until a forensic anthropologist is called upon to decipher it.

But by carefully piecing together the evidence, the facts of a life can be rebuilt. Limb by limb, case by case – some criminal, some historical, some unaccountably bizarre – Sue Black tells us the hidden stories in what we leave behind.

  • Written In Bone

  • 'Gripping from the start, Written in Bone is superb' - Dr Richard Shepherd, author of Unnatural Causes

    From the Sunday Times Bestselling author of All That Remains, Sue Black reveals the secrets hidden deep within our bones.
    Drawing upon her years of research and a wealth of remarkable experience, the world-renowned forensic anthropologist Professor Dame Sue Black takes us on a journey of revelation. From skull to feet, via the face, spine, chest, arms, hands, pelvis and legs, she shows that each part of us has a tale to tell. What we eat, where we go, everything we do leaves a trace, a message that waits patiently for months, years, sometimes centuries, until a forensic anthropologist is called upon to decipher it.
    Some of this information is easily understood, some holds its secrets tight and needs scientific cajoling to be released. But by carefully piecing together the evidence, the facts of a life can be rebuilt.

    Limb by limb, case by case - some criminal, some historical, some unaccountably bizarre - Sue Black reconstructs with intimate sensitivity and compassion the hidden stories in what we leave behind.

    Praise for Sue Black:

    'Utterly gripping' - The Guardian
    'Fascinating' - The Sunday Times
    'Moving' - Scotsman
    'Engrossing' - Financial Times
