Our Holme Festival: A body in the river – University of Huddersfield

22nd October 2019 - 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

Over the past year we’ve taken part in a community project based around the River Holme. We’re celebrating the success of this project with a day of talks from industry leading experts on all things river related.

A body in the river: the new science of forensic hydrology is a talk by Professor Carolyn Roberts, Professor Emerita of Environment, and Fellow, Gresham College, London.

Bodies of murder victims – whole or in pieces – often end up in rivers or canals. Discover how Professor Roberts helps police by applying the principles of hydrology to murder investigations.
Drawing on macabre and fascinating case studies from across the UK and beyond, Professor Roberts’ lecture takes you into the world of forensic hydrology and how understanding the science of rivers and meteorology can help to identify where bodies have come from, or disappeared to.

Probably not for those of a nervous disposition, but of guaranteed interest to the curious.
