An exhibition in Dresden, Germany has used forensic technology to recreate some of the most distant members of the human evolutionary ‘family’ – ancestors stretching back seven million years. Forensic anthropologists used computer-assisted techniques to reconstruct human remains – and the near-complete skulls of ancestors such as Sahelanthropus tchadensis have allowed researchers to reconstruct lifelike […]
