Lost Faces Of The Bible

About the Show

Lost Faces of the Bible, a four-part documentary series, blends myth-busting archaeology with dramatic recreations and forensic investigation. Having been granted unprecedented access to four ancient skulls from the Holy Land, each episode seeks to accurately reconstruct the faces of the most legendary characters of the Bible.. Travelling across the globe, archaeologists and scholars separate fact from myth, while a team of forensic anthropologists and artists put flesh on bone, using both traditional and state-of-the-art methods of facial reconstruction. With each skull comes a new story, as the experts assemble clues to rebuild not only a face, but the life and times of a bygone era.
