As part of the Bloody Scotland Festival, our Head of Soil Forensics, Professor Lorna Dawson, will participate in a discussion of forensic fact and fiction together with crime writer Lin Anderson.

Lin Anderson’s new Rhona MacLeod novel None but the Dead, set on Sanday, features soil evidence in tracking a killer. For forensic soil scientist Professor Lorna Dawson, that’s in her job description. In fact, she was involved in similar work on a previous real life Sanday murder. Combining forensic fact and forensic fiction, this event will make you look at soil in a completely different way.
