Episode 6 - BRICKS + MORTALS
Flinders Petrie and the archaeology of ‘race’
BRICKS + MORTALS uncovers a history hidden in plain sight. UCL Culture Curator Subhadra Das tells the story of the pivotal role UCL played in establishing the science of eugenics and considers how we have chosen to remember it through building names.
