Collaborators sought
Ancient Egyptian Pigments

Free X-Ray Powder Diffraction Analyses (and some Polarized Light
Microscopy) is offered to potential collaborators seeking to
identify ancient Egyptian pigments from their museum collections.
Binding media is not straightforward and this cannot be done as part
of this potential collaboration in the first instance.  Several
papers resulting from recent studies of this kind have been
published by the author or by the author and associated co-workers,
including papers which have appeared in Studies in Conservation and
the Journal of Archaeological Science.  Previous collaborations with
the Metropolitan Museum have resulted in a paper on waxy green
copper pigments on two shabti fragments, with Jiafang Liang as lead
author, the latter paper to be published in Studies in Conservation
in late 2014. Conservators and conservation scientists who might be
interested in such a collaboration regarding Egyptian pigments
should write or e-mail:

    Professor David A. Scott
    The Cotsen Institute of Archaeology
