A return to RHLSTP for the brilliant broadcaster, archaeologist and anatomist Professor Alice Roberts. We chat about her new book Buried and the previous book in the series Ancestors and the amazing science that allows us to piece together forgotten lives from bones, grave goods, language and DNA. Also why Trigger warnings aren't a big deal and TRIGGER WARNING some chat about baby skeletons, what's going on with headless corpses, why did a Roman burial have a big pipe coming out of it, writing stuff that you don't know how to pronounce and then having to do the audiobook and was the Venerable Bede full of shit? A fascinating chat and another great book.
