» King Tut’s face

In case nobody saw this yet, several archaeologists did a digital reconstruction of King Tut’s face based on CT and MRI imaging of his skull. It’s a pretty lifelike rendering. National Geographic has the exclusive on the results. Interestingly: one team of imagers was not told who the person was and came up with an almost identical face in terms of structure, shape, features, etc.
