Ancient Murders Unearthed

A series that explores history through the unique angle of criminal psychology and forensic anthropology, Ancient Murders Unearthed travels back in time to iconic epochs and cultures to re-tell the stories of infamous and little-known murders and possibly solve some of the mysteries surrounding them. Time has turned most evidence to dust, but can today's modern psychological knowledge be used hand-in-hand with new forensic developments, to understand the last actions of ancient victims and theorise on the motives of their killers?

Hosted by Louisiana homicide detective Rod Demery and geneticist, archaeologist and forensics expert Professor Turi King who cracked one of the biggest forensic DNA cases in history – the exhumation and reburial of Richard III.
