    I was visiting Kirkwall in September of last year. St Magnus Cathedral is well worth a visit - they have an information centre, the Earl's and Bishop's Palaces and a good and comprehensive museum just across the road.

    I was wondering if they were able to get any more information from the bones. Unfortunately, this article says "No DNA/isotopics from samples of bone were available that would have helped to determine hair and eye colour." Looks like the fellow who did the facial reconstruction used the photographs from 1925 as the remains were re-interred inside a pillar in the church where they remain today:
