3D Models of Historical Architectural Structures.
Restoration of a person by the skull, or the method of anthropological reconstruction of the appearance on a craniological basis, of famous (and not only) historical characters in 3D is a favorite occupation of anthropologists. Not so long ago, scientists presented to the public their vision of Tutankhamen’s appearance. It is difficult to judge the extent to which the results of the reconstruction correspond to the true appearance of the heroes of the past. Sometimes even the objects of reconstruction themselves are not the ones for whom they were accepted. But to look at them is always interesting. Let’s get acquainted with the already sunk into oblivion, but looking like living historical persons.
For example, in 2003, Egyptologist Joanne Fletcher mummy KV35YL was identified as Nefertiti, the “main spouse” of the ancient Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th Akhenaten dynasty. At the same time was reconstructed its appearance. However, in 2010, as a result of DNA research, it turned out that the remains belong not to Nefertiti, but to the other “second half” of Akhenaton, but part-time to his sister. True, maybe she was the wife of another Pharaoh – Smenhkara. However, Egyptologists agree that the remains belong to the mother of Tutankhamen.
Scientists believe that Tutankhamen suffered from genetic diseases, as well as malaria, which, perhaps, caused his early death: Pharaoh died at the age of 19. Half of the men living in Western Europe are descendants of the Egyptian pharaohs and, in particular, relatives of Tutankhamen, scientists believe. The common ancestor of the ruler of ancient Egypt and European men with the R1b1a2 haplogroup lived in the Caucasus about 9.5 thousand years ago. The carriers of the “Pharaonic” haplogroup began migrating to Europe about 7,000 years ago.
