The Lost Lectures

Carla Valentine

Aka. ‘The Chick and the Dead’ is, in her own words, a ‘chick, who works with the dead’. She is as a qualified anatomical pathology technologist (that’s a mortician to you and me) whose extensive work and research covers death, sex and everything in between. She has multiple fellowships and more letters after her name than will comfortably fit on her gravestone. Her adventures have seen her excavate plague graves in Venice and WW1 graves in Belgium. If all that wasn’t enough, she’s also chief curator at one of our favourite institutions – London’s Pathology Museum. She joins us to share insight from beyond the grave.
