Progress of the work: December 2005

The conservation of the objects from the tomb of Nakhtefmut continues this month with the mounting of the bouquet of flowers found on his mummy.

A special box was made for the bouquet, covered with glass to protect the delicate flowers. The bouquet was attached to a board and placed inside the box. The design for this mount was based on the prototype described in last April's diary entry. The mounted bouquet is shown on the right.

More detailed information about the bouquet and its conservation will be added to the Ancient Egypt Project website soon.
