Caroline Wilkinson, Director of Face Lab, Liverpool John Moores University

Face Lab specialises in the reconstruction of faces for archaeological and forensic purposes and worked with archaeologists at Durham University to reconstruct a ‘true to life’ 3D image of the solider after his remains were uncovered in Durham in 2013. The reconstruction is based on the skull of a male, known only to the project team as ‘Skeleton 22’.
