In December 2005 the second volume of the Technologische Studien was
published by the Kunsthistorisches Museum (KHM), Vienna. It contains
altogether seven articles, most of them in German (with summaries in
English), on the following topics:

    The technique of non-European metal embroidery. The article
    includes hitherto unpublished material regarding textiles from
    the Museum of Ethnology, Vienna

    The study of incisions in Caravaggio's paintings and their
    significance on his working process (article published in
    English with German summary)

    An experiment to reconstruct a technique used to forge bronze
    coins during the Roman Empire

    The experiences and results of a research project to improve the
    storage conditions, through packing in plastic film, of historic
    objects in unclimatised museum depots

    The restoration of a wooden inner sarcophagus from the Egyptian
    Collection of the KHM;

    The technique and restoration of the painting The St. Luke
    Painting the Virgin by Jan Gossaert called Mabuse;

    The legal foundations (focused on Austria and the European
    Union) and measures to protect objects and personnel from the
    effects of microbe containing dust in museum storage areas,
    libraries, and archives.
