FORENSIC EXPERT VISITS CONTINUE 

 

A series of visits to the university by leading forensic experts continues this week with a lecture from Dr Barbara Somerville, from the Cambridge Veterinary School.

 

Her lecture entitled ‘The Long Underarm of the Law’ is to be held on Wednesday 14th March at the Lincoln campus and looks at human identification using dogs.

 

“The lectures have been a great success,” commented Forensic Science lecturer Dorothy Gennard. “Especially the one about facial reconstruction given by Richard Neave in February.”

 

“The reason we are attracting such interest is that forensic science is something that seems to appeal to everyone,” she added.

 

The lecture is open to members of the public and will take place from 7:00pm in the Jackson Lecture Theatre. Entry is free of charge. For further information contact Dorothy Gennard on 01522 886885.
