Analysing the past: The chemistry of a bog body
Advances in science and technology help us every day, but how can we use them to understand the past? Join researchers from the University of York’s Department of Chemistry to find out what we can learn from analysing a 1,000 year old body preserved in a bog - from what it was wearing, to its last meal. Discover how analytical chemistry is used in archaeology through a series of games and demonstrations, including hands-on experience with professional scientific equipment.
