The reconstruction of Richard III's face

As part of our 'The Science of Richard III' series for Science Week, the Visitor Centre is hosting a series of expert speakers who were each part of the team that analysed the remains of ‘Skeleton 1’. Students will have the chance to hear first-hand about the exciting work that took place behind the scenes after the archaeological dig in the car park. In this talk, Professor Caroline Wilkinson will explain the facial reconstruction process, and how she recreated the face of Richard III.
