Birger Jarl looks very much like a guy who buys cigarettes now and then in my local shop...nice with these reconstructions.

Face of a Goth

The bottom one is the face of a Goth. The top is of a Roman soldier. From the cover of a book describing the battle at Adrianople, 378 AD. Some type of bronze carving. The Goths were from Sweden, but he dosen't look much like Birger Jarl.

Looks like a very good reconstruction! (except I didn't expect a clean-shaven face)
Some of his features remind me of Willem Dafoe!
