Facial reconstruction of 900-year-old priest

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Lincoln Cathedral, regarded as one of the most important Christian buildings in the UK, has stood over the city for over 900 years, with building works commencing in 1072. In January this year, Express.co.uk reported that researchers at Allen Archaeologist had uncovered more than 50 burials as part of the Lincoln Cathedral Connected project, but one of them stood out from the rest. This sepulture featured a complete skeleton that was determined to be a medieval priest who had been buried in the area that is now the building’s West Parvis, and he was also accompanied with his “tools for the afterlife” – a chalice and paten in hand.

Now, analysis of the skeleton has revealed intriguing new details on the clergy member and allowed for incredible facial reconstruction to be created, senior archaeologist Natasha Powers told Express.co.uk.
