The project was aimed at a documentation of unpublished ancient Egyptian copper finds. It focused on the objects from the Egyptian prehistory until the end of Middle Kingdom.
The reason for project was that not all publications provided sufficient data on the finds. When writing down the final output of the project, it was necessary to include only the most complete material gathered. Such was the case for the Old Kingdom, Dynasties 4 to 6 . The book was published in 2016. It is the first monograph ever written on the Old Kingdom copper tools and model tools.
