Forensic facial reconstruction

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    Forensic facial reconstruction is the reproduction of an individual's face from skeletal remains. Used when other forms of identification are very difficult or impossible, it can give a name to the dead in forensic cases, or in archaeological contexts, provide a tangible impression of real individuals from our past. This comprehensive work starts with a discussion of the importance of the face in society and the history of facial reconstruction, going on to evaluate the accuracy of modern reconstruction methods. The Manchester method of facial reconstruction, and the relationships between the hard and soft tissues of the face are described in detail. Uniquely, it also describes the methods and problems associated with reconstructing the faces of children. Collating all published facial tissue data and describing tissue variations with reference to age, sex, stature and ethnic origin, this book will be an important reference volume for all practitioners in the field
