When we look for physical representations of people from the pre-photography past, the only remaining options we have are either the grim skeletal remains or barely detailed and imprecise artistic depictions. 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.
