#15 - Body Farms (with Anna Williams)

Joining the conversation in this episode is forensic anthropologist Anna Williams. If Anna’s job examining dead bodies didn’t seem strange enough anyway, she’s also campaigning to set up a human taphonomy facilities, also know as a ‘body farm’, here in the UK – this facility would essentially be a field containing heaps of rotting corpses stuffed in car boots, submerged in water and hanging from nooses. This may all sound like some sort of horror film, but in this episode Anna explains how body farms are already helping scientists and police solve mysteries and catch murderers around the world.
