The remains of a 3,300-year-old woman who wore a complex
hairstyle with 70 hair extensions was discovered
in the ancient city of Armana
Researchers don't know her name, age or occupation, but she is one of hundreds of people, including many others whose hairstyles are still intact, who were buried in a cemetery near an ancient city now called Amarna.
Amarna was built more than 3,300 years ago by Akhenaten.
He was a revolutionary pharaoh who focussed Egyptian religion
around the worship of the sun disk, the Aten.
The city was abandoned not long after he died.
Archaeologist Jolanda Bos, pictured here, has been
studying the hairstyles found at Amarna.
