In the UK reconstructed the man’s face from Jericho
The reconstruction was done by experts from the British Museum and the natural history Museum.
The face was recreated based on one of the seven skulls, found by archaeologist Kathleen Kenyon during excavations on the territory of the Palestinian city of Jericho in 1953. Scientists have used 3D modeling, but the model itself is made of plaster. The researchers found that it was a grown man. During life he broke the nose, but the time of death, the fracture is healed. As a child, his mind obviously in a special way connected to change the shape of the skull and make it more elongated – a practice still common in some cultures.
If bones was able to extract DNA, it would be possible to try to set the colors of eyes and hair of men. However, in such ancient human remains, DNA is almost not preserved. Moreover, it is likely to spoil the skull. Scientists hope that in the near future thanks to technology they would still be able to do it.
