    This pre­sen­ta­tion dis­cusses how 3D hap­tic tech­nol­ogy is used to de­pict faces of the dead. The paper de­scribes 3D anatom­i­cal mod­el­ling and the util­i­sa­tion of skele­tal mod­els from clin­i­cal imag­ing data and ex­plains how this can be em­ployed to aid recog­ni­tion and iden­ti­fi­ca­tion in foren­sic in­ves­ti­ga­tions or au­then­ti­ca­tion and de­pic­tion in ar­chae­o­log­i­cal re­search. The pre­sen­ta­tion will show de­pic­tions of An­cient Egyp­tians, Bog Bod­ies and fa­mous his­tor­i­cal fig­ures, such as J.S. Bach and William Shake­speare.
