Modern technology and forensic art are allowing scientists to speculate on how ancient Egyptians looked.

Australian researchers have put together this facial simulation of a young Egyptian woman who lived about 2,000 years ago.

Her head was found, embalmed and bandaged, in the basement of a University in Melbourne, the rest of her body had already decayed and disintegrated.
