Our Team

We believe that the UK should have a Human Taphonomy Facility for forensic and allied research using donated human cadavers. The HTF4UK project is run by real life forensic anthropologist Dr. Anna Williams at the University of Huddersfield.

Dr. Williams also runs FARGo (The Forensic Anthropology Research Group) which specialises in the anthropological assessment of human and faunal skeletonised remains for police forces, other law enforcement agencies, and archaeological units.

Also involved in this project is the Burial Research Consortium, a group of academics and researchers based at universities across the UK and abroad who are devoted to furthering our understanding of human and animal decomposition and decay in a variety of depositional environments.

  1. Dear Dr Williams and team,

    I am looking to write my BSC forensic science dissertation on whether the UK should have a HTF or not. Would I be able to discuss the HTF4UK project with someone please? I am a third year student at the University of Kent and so I can easily visit the University of Huddersfield. My email is fosterwoodc@gmail.com and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind Regards,
    Caroline Foster-wood
