Tim Loveless, a resident of Alexandria, came to visit the Year 11 History class last Monday to deliver a seminar on forensic photography. Tim is one of the most eminent people in his field of expertise and took the photographs that have been used as evidence to support the cases against Mladic and Karadzic who are accused of genocide at Srebrenica.
In addition he has been responsible for helping to identify the families of Australian soldiers found in a war grave from World War 1 on the Western front at Fromelles. Their relatives have been contacted through the use of his forensic photography and the use of DNA from the skeletons.
Tim was talking to the History class as background to a controlled assessment that they will be writing that traces the changes in forensic science for use in investigative policing between 1900 and 1980.
