What can bones tell us about the past?

Then ancient DNA expert Catherine Collins discusses how genetic information from past animal populations may help predict how these animals could respond to a warming environment.

Last, forensic scientist Ruth Warren explains how the climate you grew up in leaves chemical traces in your bones that help us tell the stories of Otago’s goldrush

Suitable for curious minds of all ages!
