Description
 
The compelling story of pioneering work in reconstructing the facial appearance of ancient people. Archaeologist Prag & medical artist Neave give first-hand accounts of the search for evidence to recreate a likeness & explain the historical circumstances surrounding each body. Their subjects include a Minoan priest & priestess crushed in an earthquake while performing a human sacrifice; ‘Lindow Man’, the Iron Age body found in a peat bog near Manchester; King Midas of Phrygia, who was reputed to have ass’s ears; &, most famously of all, King Philip II of Macedon, the father of Alexander the Great. In some cases these facial reconstructions have helped to solve problems that have long vexed scholars. With 130 b&w & 20 colored illus.
