This week's NEHGS online member newsletter has a link to an article of interest to Mayflower descendants curious about what their ancestors looked like. Nearly all of our people were from England and the story is about a facial reconstruction project going on about 50 miles from London. Gizmodo ran the article; it has only the one image but mentions the groups doing the work: the University of Dundee's Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification and Cambridge University's Division of Archaeology, using money from the Wellcome Trust for a project called "After the Plague: Health and History in Medieval Cambridge." The specific medieval folk they are studying are those buried in the cemetery of a charitable hospital. Who knows; some of our ancestors might be among the faces they reconstruct. Check it out!
The author is an Arizona research historian who enjoys the challenge of looking for Mayflower descendants, hers and anyone else's.
