Copernicus - how he looked like

Recommended Posts

A very recent discovery of his burial place allowed scientists to recreate the way he looked at age of 70 - when he died. It was always well know that he must have been buried below the altar in the Frombork cathedral (in Poland) but since there were so many skeletons there no one knew who was who. They want to locate the body of his uncle and his brother and do DNA tests but the scar above the right eye and his age - 70 (few people in the 15-th century lived that long) seems to confirm that this must be him.
