KNH-Centre for Biomedical and Forensic Egyptology, University of Manchester, wins research grant

The University of Manchester and the Natural History Museum in London are to revisit the work of anthropologist Grafton Elliot Smith and set up a publicly available website on his excellent but as yet overlooked work. The team, which includes researchers at Manchester’s KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, has won a £160,000 Wellcome Trust grant to re-examine Smith’s evidence from 20,000 bodies buried at Nubia, in research that never received the recognition it deserved.
