I got to chat to Curator Daniel Antoine about his work in bioarchaeology. In the musuem there are over 3000 human remains, skeletons, mummified remains and just fragments of bone.
The British Museum is committed to curating human remains with care, respect and dignity. For more information on bioarchaeology and the curation of human remains at the British Museum please click here and for more information on the work of Daniel Antoine please click here.
