What clues would you look for at a crime scene? Fingerprints? Weapons? What about jewellery?

Dr Maria Maclennan is a lecturer in jewellery and silversmithing at the Edinburgh College of Art.

To inform forensic and criminal investigations, Maria uses the principles that underpin jewellery:

  • hallmarks
  • serial numbers
  • how an item was made
  • who it was made by.
