"To carry out the study, Joana Bruno digitised the skulls using a high-resolution 3D laser scanner. On the 3D models of the skulls, she added muscle layers and other soft tissues to obtain the most probable appearance of the persons to whom the skulls belonged, in a "complex exercise using forensic techniques and data from the biological profile of these individuals", says the archaeologist. "The application of the method starts by identifying the biological characteristics of the individual (sex and age) and collecting the measurements of each skull. Subsequently, regression equations are applied to these data to obtain the relative position of the facial features. Soft tissue depths are also added to specific areas of the skull, to determine what would be their most probable appearance", she adds. "
