Forensic Facial Reconstruction

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.

From the hardback review: 'The book achieves its goal to provide an authoritative resource for a small yet complex and highly significant part in identifying the deceased. By filling the gaps left by other reference texts and presenting an overview of so many disciplines, this work will be a useful addition to the bookshelves of many professionals.' International Journal of Osteoarchaeology From the hardback review: '... detailed information about the history of facial reconstruction ... gives the reader a good impression of how to use this method in field and what problems you have to deal with. By collecting all research data of facial tissue depth and trying to establish rules and standards of facial reconstruction, the book can also be helpful for scientists and artists who are working in this field ...'
