Bog bodies. Skeletons. Mummifying Alan.
Kat Baxter, Curator of Archaeology at Leeds Museums & Galleries, answers all of our (many) burning questions about human remains and the ethics of collecting and displaying them in museums.
We ask why some bodies are better preserved than others, and find out the kind of reactions visitors have to different types of human remains. We also discover why bog chemistry can be compared to chutney.
PLEASE NOTE: This episode contains discussions about death, burials and human remains in the context of museum collections, ethics and conservation. Please skip this episode if that isn’t for you.
