    Aims and Scope

    This volume contains the contributions to the 1st International Workshop on the Restoration of Papyri, which was held in Leipzig in September 2006. It provides insights into everyday practices of restoration, exceptional works of restoration, the problems posed by the materials as well as those involved in removing them, and the dissolving of the cartonage of mummies. There are also papers on technical matters, as well as on the production of papyri and the techniques used in folding manuscripts. The documentation of restoration work, including the digitalization of objects and a new wet cleaning method, is also presented.
