Papyrus Conservation Videos

3
I was very impressed by the quality of the following two three videos on papyrus preservation.  The first describes the work of Leyla Lau-Lamb, the principle papyrus curator at the University of Michigan Papyrus Collection.
In the second video, viewer meet Arthur Verhoogt, the archivist from the University of Michigan collection.
The second third video from the British Museum records the restoration of a Book of the Dead scroll which was pasted to a sheet of paper.
