When she's not digging up bones or other ancient objects, Ruth Galloway lectures at the University of North Norfolk. She lives happily alone in a remote, wild place called Saltmarsh, overlooking the North Sea under Norfolk's vast skies. When a child's bones are found in the marshes, Ruth is asked to date them.
