Video: See infamous fake Amarna Princess statue

Bolton Council in England bought the Amarna Princess in 2003 after Christie's and the British Museum authenticated the figurine as 3,300 years old, reports the BBC. The museum paid £440,000.

But the statue of the granddaughter of King Tutankhamun was created by Shaun Greenhalgh in his shed in Bolton. It, and other fakes, will go on display at Bolton Museum from 16 April.
