Jacquetta’s biographer Dr Christine Finn is one of the speakers at an event at the Wellcome Institute on 21 July which will “peer through the lens of archaeology to find out just how dirty our past was, the wonders contained in a speck of soil and what the future holds for the study of our filthy remains”. Digging the Dirt is part of a fascinating programme of talks based on the Wellcome’s latest exhibition, DIRT!
