Abstract

Forensic Facial reconstruction is a useful technique that can be helpful to identify a person when all that is left to investigators are skeletal remains. Facial reconstruction is a process that combines anthropology, chemistry, anatomy, and art to create an estimation of what the person looked like when they were alive. This seminar will explain how facial reconstruction is done and the different techniques that are used, and my personal experience with the process as I worked on a ceramic skull that came to be called Carl.
