Summary

The wide-ranging Wellcome exhibition Forensics: The Anatomy of Crime chronicles the origins and evolution of forensic science. Featuring, among other exhibits, a miniature crime scene replica used to train crime scene investigators, a glimpse into the Paris Morgue of the 1800s, and a chilling soundtrack of a real human autopsy, reviewer Andrew Robinson finds that the exhibition features plenty to instruct, discomfort, appall, and entertain.
