A forensic artist attempted to give faces to the Hunley crew. Markers indicating depth of flesh at different points were placed on a cast of a skull (left). Then, clay was used to sculpt a face using the markers as a guide (right). The National Geographic Expeditions Council helped fund the raising of the Hunley and the analysis of the materials found inside.
