A Western bio-archaeologist and a Western-trained forensic sculptor have laid to rest the 700-year-old rumour that Scottish warrior-king Robert the Bruce had leprosy. But in the first examination of a skull cast and a foot bone authorized by the Bruce family descendants, Western Prof. Andrew Nelson has determined King Robert did not show the telltale signs of the disease. Now forensic artist Christian Corbet is finishing a new bust of Robert the Bruce, which will be unveiled in Scotland in March, 2017

He is one of the most famous figures in Scottish history, but no one actually knows what he looks like... until now. Historians have unveiled a digitally-reconstructed image of the face of Robert the Bruce almost 700 years after his death. The image has been produced using casts from what is believed to be the skull of the famous Scottish king. It is the culmination of a two-year research project by researchers at universities in Glasgow and Liverpool.
