Medieval Nubian Wall Paintings: Techniques and Conservation

Editor  Dobrochna Zielińska

The papers in this volume are the results of an extensive programme of research based on investigations of samples of Nubian mural paintings from the Middle Nile Valley dating from the 6th to the 14th century AD. Many of these samples came from paintings which are now in the National Museum, Khartoum and the National Museum in Warsaw. Others came from current archaeological excavations in Sudan.

The composition of plasters, pigments and binders and lime washes are reported in detail together with an overview of previous and present conservation and transfer procedures. The data collected show the changes in painting methods and materials over time and the possible associated implications in terms of patronage, trading links, economy etc.
