Forensic Reconstruction of 9,500 year-old Skull
Neat story:

CNN article

Quote:(CNN) — For years, the battered 9,500-year-old Jericho Skull has been one of the British Museum's most chilling exhibits -- as well as its oldest portrait.

Decorated with plaster in a Neolithic ritual, it was of seven discovered by eminent British archaeologist Kathleen Kenyon more than 60 years ago in Jericho, West Bank, one of the world's oldest cities.

Now visitors are coming face to face with the man behind the plaster mask, after an extraordinary reconstruction effort that combined forensic science and the latest technology.
