DVD1668

NOVA. Forensic Science Reveals the Astonishing Rituals of the Iron Age. Central Ireland’s waterlogged landscape is no ordinary ground. Here, the moist earth halts decomposition, perfectly preserving stunning evidence of brutal ritualistic killings – corpses from the prehistoric Iron Age, over 2,000 years ago. Make no mistake, these are not skeletons or mummies, but soft tissue and remains of people trapped in time.The perpetrators of this ancient violence are well beyond the reach of the law, but there are still many fascinating secrets their victims will share if only modern science knows how to ask. Enter the lab with the experts as they push archaeological forensics to its limits, aiming to enlighten how these people lived and establish how they died. 56 min. Includes material & activities for educators, link to NOVA web site, scene selections, and described video.
