Scientists reconstruct 35,000-year-old face from skull fragments

Scientists have reconstructed a face belonging to one of the first early European humans.

‘It’s really quite bizarre. I’m a scientist and objective but I look at that face and think “Gosh, I’m actually looking at the face of somebody from 40,000 years ago” and there’s something weirdly moving about that,’ she told the Independent.

‘Richard creates skulls of much more recent humans and he’s used to looking at differences between populations,’ she added.

‘He said the skull doesn’t actually look European, or Asian, or African. It looks like a mixture of all of them. And you think, well that’s probably what you’d expect of someone who was among the earliest populations to come to Europe.’
