The oral presentation aimed to demonstrate how in-situ reflectance spectroscopy could be used to aid in the location and detection of single or mass graves. Additionally, the presentation advocated the potential for further research to be conducted at human natural burial grounds within the United Kingdom and also aimed to introduce in situ reflectance spectroscopy for application in forensic contexts.

The presentation introduced a potential quick, non-invasive tool which could be utilised within the initial search, location, and detection of mass graves.
