Dawson, Julie, Christina Rozeik & Margot M. Wright (eds.).
Decorated Surfaces on Ancient Egyptian Objects: Technology, Deterioration and Conservation.

Cambridge Fitzwilliam Museum/Archetype Publications: 2010.

"From monumental tomb paintings to delicate ivories, ancient Egyptian objects are some of the most complex and fragile encountered by archaeologists, curators and conservators. Those who examine, analyse and treat them face a number of practical and ethical challenges. This volume of papers, by an international group of experts, focuses on decorated surfaces including polychrome wood, coloured basketry, patinated metal and painted textile. Aspects of technology, investigation and treatment are examined, as well as broader issues of preservation, storage and display. A comprehensive review of past and current treatments for organic objects is followed by thought provoking case studies, technical surveys and innovative solutions to conservation problems. Wide-ranging, authoritative and accessible, this book is essential reading for anyone concerned with the study and care of ancient Egyptian objects".

Softcover. 8.5"x12", 181 pages, color and black & white illustrations. Fine.
