NOVA The Perfect Corpse DVD

Grades 9-College. Central Ireland's waterlogged landscape is no ordinary ground. Its moist earth halts decomposition, perfectly preserving stunning evidence of brutal ritualistic killingsĀ—corpses from the prehistoric Iron Age, over 2,000 years ago. They are not skeletons or mummies, but the soft tissue and remains of people trapped in time. There are still many fascinating secrets they can share if only modern science knows how to ask. Enter the lab with the experts as they push archaeological forensics to its limits, aiming to enlighten how these people lived and establish how and why they died. Special DVD-ROM features include printable materials for educators, access to the NOVAĀ® Web site, scene selection, and described video for the visually impaired. Close-captioned. 56 minutes. 2006.
