What counts as evidence? And how do we use objects to tell our life stories? A photograph, a letter, a bracelet with a story.....many of us have objects that we count as evidence for something. The object clearly exists, but how sure are we about our conclusions? Members of College will present objects of theirs, how they count as evidence, and for what, and will be cross-examined by a panel of experts from Archaeology, Law, and the Police.
