Joyce Filer, Egyptologist, Formerly Curator of Human & Animal Remains, Dept. Ancient Egypt & Sudan, British Museum, London

The 21st century has seen incredible advances in our knowledge and use of forensic sciences

  • To investigate crimes and find out about people from ancient times.
  • How can we apply this information to the people of ancient Egypt?
  • Ever wondered how archaeologists work out the age at death of a mummy or skeleton?
  • How do they know if the body is male or female? What diseases did people have?
  • How can we identify the men and women from ancient times?
