What Historical Figures Actually Looked Like

George Washington


George Washington was a military general and the 1st President of the United States. But have human faces like Washington’s changed over the years? Uterwijk weighs in. “I think the human face hasn’t changed dramatically over thousands of years and apart from hairstyles and makeup, people that lived long ago probably looked very much like us, but we are used to seeing them in the often distorted styles of ancient art forms that existed long before the invention of photography.”
