What did Robert the Bruce (1274-1329) look like?  Liverpool Medical Institution have a cast of his skull, one of only a few known copies in existence, and Glasgow University have been working with Liverpool John Moores University’s Face Lab to reconstruct his face. This film shows the research and statistical evaluation needed to recreate this face from the past and how facial reconstruction has developed with technology.

Liverpool Medical Institution is one of the oldest medical societies in the UK. The beautiful Neoclassical building dates from 1837 and is home to a fabulous collection of medical books and artefacts.
