Editorial

This issue comprises an article presenting the outputs of a multi-disciplinary collaboration of scholars from the Departments of Egypt and Sudan, Middle East and Conservation at the British Museum. It combines research into, and conservation of, a group of glazed tiles found at the Assyrian city of Nimrud, which depict military scenes in Egypt. The renewed study of these long-known objects with, as presented here, the first detailed drawings and photographs of all the surviving fragments, in addition to newly identified and discovered fragments, enables the authors to thoroughly reassess the discovery, production and narrative content of the tiles in relation to other known later-Sargonid glazed material and artwork. It demonstrates how the close study of objects and archives, even seemingly well-published material, can yield significant results in understanding key issues, in this case the development of architecture and Egyptian influence on Assyrian art.
