Heads & Tales – an evening with the Author

18th Oct. 2013 – meet Author Iain Macleod



Come and meet author and facial reconstruction specialist Iain MacLeod for a talk about the techniques used in contemporary forensic work as applied to archaeological remains.



What did a Bronze Age man really look like? This unusual book tells us — and a lot more. Here are the techniques and detective work involved in facial reconstruction. Author Iain MacLeod tells us how innovations in science and technology assist in producing replica skulls from damaged or fragile archaeological material, and how the clues from contemporary descriptions, portraits and busts now enable scientists to give faces back to our ancestors. Six case studies are examined, including an ancient Egyptian princess and Robert the Bruce.
