Every week archaeologists uncover bodies. Sometimes individuals but more commonly they find groups of people buried together. Most discoveries are unexpected; the result of archaeology being done in advance of a major building or infrastructure development. From tales of battles, of misdemeanours, of disease, of tragedy or tragic accident Tori Herridge, assisted by mortuary technician Carla Valentine and archaeologist Raksha Dave, attempt to piece together the lives behind these bones, what happened to these people and how they came to be where they were found.
