The crucial evidence at a murder trial can often be provided not by human witnesses, but by insects. Insects are ubiquitous in nature and so are regularly encountered at crime scenes, either as a natural part of the environment or because they have been attracted there by a dead body. This can help the forensic entomologist ascertain how long the victim has been dead by assessing the degree to which insects have colonised the corpse.

Martin Hall will introduce the basics of the science, then take the audience from the crime scene to the laboratory and finally to the court room where the evidence is presented. He will end with a discussion of the wider applications of biomedical entomology beyond the criminal justice system.

Tickets £12. Each ticket includes one delightful Hendrick’s Gin cocktail and a 20% donation towards a host of restoration projects at Kensal Green Cemetery.

This salon in the cemetery is part of the London Month of the Dead 2017.

MARTIN HALL
Martin Hall has worked as a forensic entomologist on some 200 criminal cases during the past 25 years. He is author or co-author of more than 140 peer-reviewed scientific publications, many on the biology of blowflies, the insects of primary evidential importance in forensic entomology. His most recent research focuses on the use of micro-CT scanning techniques to age developing blow flies within their puparia. Martin was the founding President of the European Association for Forensic Entomology (2002-2006) and he is on the Editorial Boards of Medical and Veterinary Entomology and Forensic Science International.
