The fact Tutankhamun's body had been mummified didn't make Robin's job any easier. The body may as well have been bare bones - because it's a person's skull that gives away the main features of the face.
'In the case of a mummy, the soft tissue remains are dried and sunken, so they are no longer giving us the dimensions of the face.'
