By Mag. Andrea Donau, Conservator of the Papyrus Collection at the
National Library of Austria

In this course the very unique and sensitive material papyrus will
be introduced. Theoretical aspects of this fascinating topic are:
the manufacture of papyrus, the quality of the raw material, the use
and conditions of papyri (age and archeological site), the history
of the "Vienna Collection", ink, pigments and dyes as well as
preservation and housing. The participants will get the chance to
treat small papyrus fragments and thus experience the handling and
treatment of this special material.

Language will be German and English.
Registration fee: 490 euros (members IADA 450 euros)
