  Margaret Cox Tuesday 8 July 2003  
We've seen on the news the horrific scenes at mass graves in Iraq where the victims of Saddam Hussein's regime were buried. It's now believed there are 50 sites and some 300,000 people thought to have met their end in this way.

There have been concerns about the way the Iraqi's allowed relatives near the sites, worries that any forensic evidence needed for the future proseution of war crimes may have been contaminated.
But Margaret Cox, Professor of Forensic Archaeology and Anthropology at Bournemouth University has been reassured by her recent trip to lead a team of forensic investigators.
Professor Cox joins Jenni to talk about her team's work there.
