Scientists create face for ancient greek girl

Scientists have reconstructed the face of an 11 year-old girl from Athens who died around 430 BC.

Her skeletal remains were used along with 3D techniques to help create an accurate model.

She's now been placed on display in the Greek capital and the United Nations hope she'll help raise awareness of child health issues.
