Digital reconstruction gives glimpse of Robert the Bruce

Researchers from universities in Glasgow and Liverpool have reconstructed the face of Scotland's warrior king, Robert the Bruce.

Facial reconstruction software used images from a cast of a skull, found beneath Dunfermline Abbey, during excavation work nearly 200 years ago.

The teams at Glasgow University and Liverpool John Moores University believe this is the first accurate, digital reconstruction of the hero of Bannockburn.

Dr Martin Macgregor, from Glasgow University, says the image shows a "real sense of character in the face".
