PÉRCÉA Bois (Projet d’Étude et de Restauration des Collections Égyptiennes anciennes: bois)

The PÉRCÉA Bois project, carried out between 2018 and 2020, was initiated in order to document, analyse, restore, archive and publish the important collection of archaeological wooden artefacts currently stored in the basement of the French Institute in Cairo. Thanks to the Institute’s commitment towards preserving and enhancing its collections, this group of nearly 250 objects, left largely untouched since the beginning of the 20th century, has now been examined and recorded, facilitating access to the objects and improving our knowledge of them.
