"Using a skull shape determined by hundreds of recent CT scans, three groups of researchers have independently produced busts showing what Egypt's King Tutankhamen probably looked like..."

I wonder how this process actually works and how much of it is artistic license

I have always debated the art vs science of this as well. I am sure there is a little room for error.

Also, I bet there are only a few who can REALLY do this well.
