A visit to a forensic laboratory in Moscow confirmed my suspicion that being a close relative of the crown of creation won’t get you any respect.

In a corner of the basement, my hosts revealed a rough-hewn face that they were trying to keep under wraps. I wasn’t even allowed to take a picture. They had tried their hand at a Neanderthal skull, and the resulting bust so eerily resembled one of the most powerful Duma (parliament) members that they feared he would close down their institute if a picture ever saw the light of day.
