Peru reconstructs face of woman who ruled 1,700 years agoIntroducing the Lady of Cao: using high-tech 3-D printing and based on the skull of an ancient mummy, scientists have reconstructed the face of a woman who governed in northern Peru 1,700 years ago. The woman’s mummified remains were discovered at the Cao Viejo adobe pyramid in 2006 in the Chicama Valley, just north of the modern city of Trujillo. “Technology allows us to see the face of a political, religious and cultural leader of the past,” Culture Minister Salvador del Solar said when he unveiled a life-like bust of the woman on Tuesday in Lima.
