“The Secret in the Cellar” is a Webcomic based on an authentic forensic case of a recently discovered 17th Century body. Using graphics, photos, and online activities, the Webcomic unravels a mystery of historical, and scientific importance. Online sleuths can analyze artifacts and examine the skeleton for the tell-tale forensic clues that bring the deceased to life and establish the cause of death.

Developed specifically to help promote the exhibit “Written in Bone” to middle school children, The Secret in the Cellar was developed with Booz Allen Hamilton and the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and was awarded a gold medal by the United States Distance Learning Center
