CSI BODY IN THE BOX - PUBLIC WORKSHOP

Come alone, in a pair or as a group to take part

By the side of a quiet road, on the edge of a forest, a gruesome discovery has shocked both locals and law enforcement alike. A mysterious box, hidden within a long-forgotten car, has surfaced, revealing its grim contents: a damaged skull and eight human bones - with a cryptic code etched into the bones themselves.

As part of the investigative team called upon to solve the case, your challenge is to identify the body in the box and the sinister secrets it holds.

You will be trained to identify and measure the bones, helping you to determine the stature and biological gender of the individual to whom they once belonged. Then compare skull types and find key features that reveal the ancestral origins of the deceased and the probable cause of death.

Finally, can you harvest enough DNA and analyse the results to confirm the identity of the victim by matching it to suspected family members of the missing person before reporting the findings of your investigation in an exciting head-to-head competition.

Take part in a thrilling challenge and join forensic and detective teams to investigate a case that combines anthropology, genetics and criminology, showcasing the fascinating intersection of science and detective work.

Can you solve it?
