This video shows the process computer reconstruction of the face 50-year-old male, victim of Vesuvius. This is the first skull that served as the basis for calculations according to the method of recovery of the facial bones. Skull for the first restoration project was chosen by the Italian archaeologist pier Paolo Petrone, an employee of the University Federico II in Naples. The eruption of Vesuvius began in the afternoon of 24 August 79 ad and lasted about a day. Lava was covered three cities: Pompeii, Herculaneum, Stabiae, as well as several small villages and villas. This 50-year-old wealthy man was a native of Herculaneum. He died in a split second from a wave of incredible heat emanating from the volcano. His skull exploded from the high temperature fluids of the body vanished, his teeth were broken. «These skeletons, says Dr. Petrone, we find in the «frozen postures», known as cadaveric spasm is a form of muscle tension associated with instant violent death».
Recovery was made more than 150 pictures of the skull using 3D cameras from different angles. The fact that the skulls do not have teeth, greatly puzzled scientists, so I had to resort to pictures of dentures a virtual donor-volunteer with similar data of the skull. All other lines are derived from the ratio of the bones is known since the time of the creation methods of the Soviet anthropologist Mikhail Gerasimov («Gerasimov method» — the restoration of human appearance based on skeletal remains). For example, we know that if we continue the direction podnosioca thorn, and the direction of the nasal bones, at their point of intersection is the tip of the soft nose. As if to mirror the profile of the pear-shaped aperture relative to a line drawn from the end of the nasal bones to the tip of the spike podnozova, it is possible to approximate the contour of the soft nose.
In this case we used the method of computer simulation, which, of course, is not the ideal tool to create perfectly exact portraits of the bones of the skull. However, this appearance may be sufficiently similar to the portrait of a resident of Herculaneum, who died during the eruption of Vesuvius.
