Like any branch of science, anthropology is constantly evolving, and its current challenges are better understood in the light of past achievements. This program serves as an excellent tool for studying archaeological techniques that preceded the rise of genetic analysis and DNA testing. Produced in 1989, the film describes fieldwork and investigative methods used in exhuming, dating, and studying nearly 1,000 skeletal remains from London's Christ Church Spitalfields. Specific topics are diverse and include potential dating discrepancies, historical and cultural insights emerging from the find, concerns about the health of the excavation team, the project's impact on the surrounding community, and the need to work in concert with living descendents of the buried individuals.
