Forensic pathology slides

The Pathology Learning Centre is undergoing the process of digitizing slide images from the personal research archive of retired forensic pathologist, Professor Deon Knobel. The collection is made up of photographic images of evidence, specimens and other examples relating to the field of forensics. Knobel himself and investigating officers took many of these photographs in situ at crime scenes and sites of violence. Renowned for his dynamic teaching style, Knobel often drew on this fascinating collection for his lectures.


The Pathology department is currently digitizing their collection of Post-Mortem books, dating back to 1919, they are available online .
