Dead King 



A cast of the face of Pharaoh Ramses VI lies in its tomb March 21, 2004, after renovation works finished in Luxor. The tomb of Ramses VI, who ruled from 1156 to 1145 BC, was robbed within a 100 years of the pharaoh's death and his sarcophagus was broken into hundreds of pieces. A U.S.-funded project has gathered about 250 pieces to re-assemble much of the original sarcophagus. But the team have had to use a cast of the face because the original has been in the British Museum since 1823. (Aladin Abdel Naby/Reuters)
