Skeletal Secrets

17 September 2022 - 11:00

The Clock Tower & Humberstone Gate, Leicester

This is a drop-in event, running between 11.00-16.30 – there is no need to book. 


We’ve convinced Sarah Inskip and her colleagues from the University of
Leicester’s
 School of Archaeology and Ancient History to let you in on some secrets. But you’ll need to search your bones and teeth to find them. 

This series of activities around bioarchaeology will reveal what effects your lifestyle can have on your bones. Whether it’s from past tobacco use or the role of intoxicants in causing chronic disease – find answers from within. 

Please be aware that human skeletal remains will be used in this exhibit.
