This book's major contributions include a detailed description of the Manchester method of facial reconstruction, using all the available published data on tissue depths and variation with age, sex, stature and ethnic origin. Caroline Wilkinson also includes an evaluation of the methods and problems associated with reconstructing the faces of children. Forensic facial reconstruction reproduces an individual's face from skeletal remains. Used when identification is otherwise 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.Read more

"The use of simple, clear graphics and illustrations make the book visually rich. This book is an excellent resource for the practicing forensic artist, and it is also a wonderufl read for the fine artist or anone else interested in the human face."

"A well written text on technique and theory of facial reconstruction."
Journal of the American Association of Forensic Dentists
"...detailed... practical.... 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 but not using the Manchester method for facial reconstruction."
Kurt W. Alt, Journal of Comparative Human Biology
