A facial reconstruction of a medieval priest found buried at Lincoln Cathedral has been unveiled
Archaeologist Natasha Powers said the real-life image was „not an exact likeness” but a „representation” based on his skull and medieval drawings.
Experts analysed the 5ft 7in (169cm) skeleton and estimated he died aged between 35 and 45 years old.
Ms Powers said the priest’s facial features were based on a model of his skull but his colouration – including that of his eyes and skin – as well as his hairstyle, the size of his lips, and facial hair were „guess work”.
