    Abstract

    The ability to obtain accurate superimposition of the image of the teeth from ante- and post-mortem dentitions is a prerequisite of photographic superimposition. A prototype skull and camera holder is described that enables this to be achieved quickly and simply. The position of the skull relative to the attitude of the face in the photograph can then be documented and hence reproduced as required.
