The Arzhan-2 burial of the Scythian ‘King’ and the ‘Queen’, found in 1997 and studied between 2001-2003 by Russian-German expedition is one the most extraordinary discoveries ever made by archeologists. 

Now for the first time the features of the powerful couple buried in their gold-encrusted, awe-inspiring clothing can be seen in life-like sculptures thanks to work of Moscow Miklukho-Maklai Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology, and Novosibirsk Institute of Archeology and Ethnography.

Two teams of anthropologists spent months meticulously building 3d models of the skulls, using laser scanning and photogrammetry to then re-create the faces of the people that ruled vast sways of steppes and mountains at the time when the Great Pyramids were getting built in Egypt.

The article states that the skeletons were 2600 years old, yet goes on to say that:

"Nonetheless, despite these difficulties the end result is undeniably impressive - revealing to the world, for the first time in thousands of years, the faces of the people who ruled the Siberian steppes at a time when the Egyptians were still building the Great Pyramids."

Surely, the Egyptians were building the Great Pyramids around 1950-1900 years before that?

Well spotted, this was an error carried across from the Siberian Times article.

This has now been corrected in our coverage of the story.
