Some artists try to reimagine what a certain queen or medieval peasant might've looked like, but their vision and imagination is limited to their own times. However, technology has advanced to the levels where we can employ science to accurately depict what people of the past looked like, as if they were alive today.

GIGGAG has compiled a list of various reconstructions that give us a fascinating glimpse into the past. Scroll down to check them out and don't forget to comment and vote on your favorites!
