EMCP 2011-2012 season – 7 and 14 March

The last two weeks, two days of work on the Amenhotep II leather was done. This important material, remnants of quivers and bow-cases as well as more ordinary red axe lashings, have been described (Salima) and photographed (André). It becomes increasingly clear that there are many differences between these finds and those from other tombs, but, interestingly, also many analogies. The material is very fragile and in need of conservation, the possibilities of which will be explored by our conservator, Lucy.
