DUNDEE The face of the 18th-century composer Johann Sebastian Bach has been reconstructed using the latest technology. A bronze replica of his skull was used to create the model, which bears similarities to a portrait by Elias Haussmann in 1746. The model, created by a team led by Caroline Wilkinson, of the University of Dundee, is due to be shown in Germany next week.
