The Japanese experts (Dr. Mie Ishii and Midori Yokoyama) from the textile team arrived on 4th February, 2017. The team’s mission is to confirm the current condition and prepare documentation, also to finalize the conservation team and conservation policy. Many meetings were held to confirm the transportation schedule, first aid treatment as well as tools and materials needed for it, not to mention the documentation plan, and the treatment plan.
The next mission of Japanese experts is planned in March. It will be for making conservation plan for each object, and planning for the transportation of target artifacts from the Egyptian Museum.
