Today we had a special guest, Kirsty, from Durham University come and speak to science club about The Bodies of Evidence Exhibtion which is currently at Palace Green Library in Durham.
We learned that the English and Scottish sometimes didn’t get on and learned about the Battle of Dunbar. Over 3000 Scottish prisoners were matched from Dunbar to Durham Cathedral. In 2013 some of their bodies were found buried under where the Palace Green Library cafe is.
We learned some of the techniques used to identify them.
