The face of the Stonehedge Man, who lived 5,500 years back has now been recreated by a team of scientists .

The man's well-preserved skeleton was found in an elaborate tomb in the 1860s.

Swedish sculptor Oscar Nilsson gave his face life by using data from bone and tooth analyses, LiveScience reported.

His bones' length, his skeleton's weight and his age, which was estimated at between 25 and 40 years old, were used to calculate his skin's thickness on his face and muscle definition.

A vinyl copy of the skull, made by Andrew Wilson at the University of Bradford, was used as a base by Nilsson for his clay reconstruction of muscles; he was guided by markers that denoted his face's fleshiness.

Nilsson created moulded silicon skin and added pigment before attaching the hair.
