How to perform blood spatter analysis

In this forensic science video, Mark Boulter demonstrates how to perform blood spatter analysis. 

Blood spatter analysis is part of crime scene investigation and is the interpretation of bloodstains at a crime scene in order to recreate the actions that caused the bloodshed.

Blood spatter analysts examine the size, shape, distribution and location of the bloodstains to form opinions about what did or did not happen.

This technique is taught to students on our Forensic Science courses at University of South Wales.
