Leper Lady of St Giles' face reconstructed

Recommended Posts


"Incredible digital reconstructions have brought to life the faces of two people buried at St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh, thought to be some of the city's first inhabitants.

"People lived in the area for centuries, but the town was only formally founded in the 12th-century, when it became one of Scotland's first boroughs.

"Many of these early residents were buried at St Giles', according to the city council's own archaeologist.

"One person, first found in the 80s, is a 5ft 7in middle-aged man with a missing jaw who lived 900 years ago and may have been one of the city's very first residents."
