I saw this on the BBC and thought you should see it:

This area of forensics and DNA really fascinate me. It’s good to be able to add a further dimension when reading historical documents of people and events.
Sometimes, I read about how we lived historically and think about how easy we have it now, with everyone trying to have their feelings catered for. Nowadays, you upset someone and find yourselves unfriended on Facebook. Back then, you were executed with an axe blow to the skull!
