Upcoming Historical Forensics Class

Posted on the 24 February 2011 by Dplylemd

Want to know where it all started? Learn how fingerprinting, toxicology, blood analysis, firearm examinations, and autopsies developed and were used in criminal investigations a hundred years ago? Sign up for my Coffin Class for the Romance Writers of America’s Kiss of Death Chapter. It begins March 1st. Here are their descriptive materials and sign up instructions.

Title: Historical Forensics

Instructor: D.P. Lyle, MD

Class Description: Today we’re all familiar with the marvels of CSI, whether from reading mysteries or true crime or watching television programs and movies. But all these ways to pin the crime — and the criminal — down had to start somewhere! So where and when did it all begin? And what sorts of things were early forensic investigators able to do?

This class will cover the late 19th and early 20th centuries, an era that gave birth to so many forensic techniques: fingerprints, blood typing, firearm’s examinations, toxicology, and the expansion of the autopsy into the forensic arena. This will give the writer of historical fiction the accurate information needed and will give all crime writers a firm foundation for understanding the world of modern forensics.

Dr. Doug Lyle, M.D. will lay the historic groundwork in March 2011′s Murder One workshop, HISTORICAL FORENSICS.
