myrtis HOW THE SCIENTISTS RESURRECTED MYRTIS

The Myrtis resurrected. He was just 11 years old when he died 2,500 years ago in Athens, at the time of Pericles, of typhoid fever, as hundreds of Athenians, victims of famine in Athens, a terrible epidemic that decimated the 1 / 3 of the population of the city.

He small skull found in 1994-95 with the bones of 150 other people, adults and children, the so-called grave of plague during excavation work in the metro Kerameikos. The good preservation of the skull was the main reason why Microsoft entered the research of Assistant Professor of Orthodontics, University of Athens Manolis J. Papagrigorakis, who in collaboration with other scientists recreated the face, and yesterday for the first time public in a special ceremony in the auditorium of the new Acropolis Museum.

It's a girl with a large forehead and possibly brown eyes and hair. Regeneration of facial blueberry played a key role to maintain the upper and lower jawbone and teeth of all children, permanent and some deciduous, something rare, according to Mr. Papagrigorakis, 30 years involved in the investigation of ancient skulls .

The information they gave to the excavation findings Myrtis, dubbed as the archaeologists' from the teeth, which at the time of her death was the final stage of mixed dentition.

The profile of the person and characteristics have been attributed, but are not ruled out the possibility of error, as he explains, because the soft parts of the face, nose and ears are not defined only by the bones of the face. Also the color of eyes and hair have been assigned based on the view of archaeologists, that the people of that era were mostly brown. We need to do laboratory test of a small genome to identify colors and racial characteristics. So far there was no money, he said that he has funded this research as the university. And Myrtis far has cost a lot.. Few of the state. "

First stop was the healing institute "Brain", where the radiologist Panayiotis Tountas passed the skull of a scan.
The data sent to the CT scanner TEI, where the team of Mr. and Maravelaki Antoniadis created in digital form initially and then a copy of an ancient skull. On this models, received by the sculptor Oscar Nilsson Sweden "built" in eight months the form of blueberry. He has created and the person of Philip II.

All stages of research, from the excavation of Efi-Baziotopoulou Valavanis, which dated to the mass grave in 430-426 BC and correlated with the epidemic that has contributed to the defeat of Athens in the Peloponnesian War, as the medical findings from the investigation of skeletal material will be presented with a blueberry on 15 April in a report entitled "Myrtis: face to face with the past ' the Museum of Natural History (100 Othon, Kifissia). There, visitors will have the opportunity to set up with a girl in the 5th century BC to be wearing a simple linen dress earthy color, designed by Sophia Kokosalaki and stitched by Helen Klimogianni. After 2-3 months the exhibition will travel to various cities in Greece and abroad.

Ο Νέστωρ ήταν βασιλιάς της Πύλου στη Μεσσηνία. Ο Όμηρος τον ξεχωρίζει ως συνετό σύμβουλο και δεινό ομιλητή.
