Durham4Schools hosted a workshop for our Year 9 prospective Sandhill Scholars which involved handling ancient artefacts (including casts of human remains!) and how to identify possible causes of death. Students debated the ethics behind displaying human remains in museums and galleries and discussed whether there was a difference between displaying human remains and taxidermy (animal remains).
