Fossil Forensics, University of Birmingham

One crime. Three suspects. Do you have what it takes to solve who stole our dinosaur bone?

Fossil Forensics involves visitors solving a fictional crime (dinosaur bone smuggling), using sediment samples full of microfossils to rule out potential suspects. The crime gets introduced through hand-outs of newspaper articles or having it described to them, followed by the chance to get up close to our sand samples using microscopes and finally matching the samples to the suspects to track down our perpetrator.

Everyone will thoroughly enjoy solving our crime and catching the pesky criminal!
