Online event with soil expert, Professor Lorna Dawson. An Inspiring People At Home talk from the Royal Scottish Geographical Society.

Soil materials have been used as forensic trace evidence since the time of the Romans, and are often highly distinctive from one region to another. This makes them highly valuable forms of intelligence and evidence, aiding crime investigations and reconstructions. Covering examples from real case work, and from fiction, forensic scientist Lorna Dawson examines evidence from the earth and its role in bringing about natural justice.

This event will consist of a short film and presentation prepared by the speaker, followed by an interactive Q&A.
