Sue Black: staring death in the face (The Biologist)

One of the most compelling interviews I’ve ever done.

Forensic anthropologist professor Sue Black tells me about her fascination with flesh, which began when she took a job in a butchers as a teen. Her fearless love of anatomy, and later, forensics, led to her investigating the scenes of war crimes committed during various conflicts throughout the 1990s. She explains how science kept her sane amid the horrors of a war zone.
