I reviewed four new science books for The New York Times. They span millions of years, beginning with the birth of humanity and ending with a serious look at AI.
Mark Greenwood wrote a wonderful book for children called Ned Kelly and the Green Sash.
Dr. Jeremy Smith, Senior Archeologist at Heritage Victoria, wrote about his investigation into the skeletal remains found at Pentridge Prison for Providence, the journal of the Public Records Office, to be published in September/October.
The scientists and researchers at the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine have also written about their investigation into the old skulls and bones.
Consider the case of Ned Kelly's skull. You can read my article about the bushranger's DNA and the solution to this decades-old mystery at The New York Times.
Here, the August 22, 1880 article in The New York Times reporting the capture of the Kelly gang.
