Viajar com os ossos: da nossa história natural à resolução de casos criminais

Público-alvo: Público em geral

RESUMO DA PALESTRA:
Os ossos, como tecidos duros do corpo humano, quando fossilizam, contam estórias sobre a nossa história natural. Por outro lado, quando passou pouco tempo desde a altura da morte e os tecidos moles já não são informativos, os ossos testemunham violações de direitos humanos e permitem devolver a identidade a quem a perdeu. São estórias dos ossos, que são intemporais, que se vão contar, uma viagem desde há 7 milhões de anos até ao presente.
