The project focused on the detailed study of the artefacts from the collection of Art Historical Museum in Vienna (Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien, further KHM). Fiften objects were analysed in the Scientific Laboratory of the KHM by Katharina Uhlir and Marie Jentsch.
The chemical composition of artefacts was established with the help of the method of X-ray flourescence. Objects from Early Dynastic period, Old Kingdom, First Intermediate period, Middle Kingdom, and Second Intermediate period were included. Most of them were discovered at the excavations of Egyptologist Hermann Junker.
The final article, summing up the project results, is accepted this year for publication in the journal Ägypten und Levante.
