Iufenamun was a senior priest from ancient Egypt. Scientists created this image of Iufenamun by using an advanced digital technology after scanning his mummy. It seems that he died at the age of 40 years. It is believed that Iufenamun and his father Nesypaqashuty were given the task of removing mummified bodies of Egyptian Pharaohs from the Kings' valley to safeguard them from grave robbers.
