The search for clandestine graves involves a multi-disciplinary approach using techniques such as foot searches, ground penetrating radar and cadaver dogs. In order to incorporate a practical activity into a taught session in December an alternative approach to fieldwork was required. Therefore, a clandestine grave workshop was developed to engage students in this topic in an interesting and hands on way that offered students a chance to utilise different techniques to search for and recover human remains giving them a chance to plan an approach and modify it as the search progressed and new information was released.
