Supergrass

Crime writer Louise Welsh discovers that both forensic scientists and archaeologists are finding plants an extraordinarily useful tool in the hunt for clues.

Two bodies are discovered: the bodies of two men a thousand miles and five millennia apart. One discovery poses an archaeological riddle, the other launches a murder investigation.

Yet simply by examining plant remains associated with the bodies it's possible to piece together the stories of these two very different lives and deaths.
