A medieval Cheshire monk is recreated and comes face to face with one of his living relatives thanks to Lancaster University researchers.

A medieval Cheshire monk has been recreated and brought face to face with one of his living relatives by researchers at Lancaster University.

PhD graduates in medieval history studied the skull of Canon William Dutton who is buried at Norton Priory in Runcorn, Cheshire.

After producing a reconstruction model of how he would have looked, they introduced the monk to one of his relatives, Peter Moore-Dutton.
