While engineering techniques have solved a few historical mysteries, there are many more to shed light upon, whether that is using micro-CT scanning, hyperspectral imaging or completely new technology. 

But in order to crack codes, reveal stitches or injuries to ancient bones in the future, engineers are working to preserve artefacts so they can be studied in years to come.

Our next unique Ingenia live! event will look at real-life case studies that used different engineering techniques to help reveal secrets from the past. 

"Forensic engineering is a fascinating field
which has been opened up by innovations in technology. 
This event is a great opportunity for you to engage with the experts 
and find out how they did it!"

Dr Scott Steedman CBE FREng
