A visitor looks at a projection showing a facial reconstruction of a 5,600-year old skull, found on the Maltese island of Gozo, during Jewellery Through the Times, part of Fashion Week Malta, in which models presented replicas of jewellery worn in Neolithic Malta, in Lija outside Valletta. The replicas were recreated with meticulous attention to detail from unique pieces dating back to 3,600 BC at the National Museum of Archaeology, according to the organisers. The facial reconstruction by the University of Dundee, the first ever done of a Neolithic inhabitant of Malta, is of a woman who died in her thirties round 3,600 BC. - Reuters/Darrin Zammit Lupi
