16. King Tut
Tutankhamun was the pharaoh of Egypt from 1332-1323 BC. He had a very short reign, and yet so many people know his name, since he was behind much of Egypt’s rise to power and greatness. In 2005, a famous Egyptologist named Zahi Hawass lead a group of anthropologists to recreate King Tut’s likeness. They took 3D CT scans of the Pharaoh’s mummy and had 1,700 images of cross-sections of his body. Once they began to recreate his image, they believe that it looks very similar to portraits taken of him when he was just a child. Along with images of his face, they were also able to find attributes that they would have hidden from the public, like an overbite, malformed hips, and a club foot that would have made it difficult for him to walk.
