BMSAES Special Issue: Dedicated to papyrus conservator Bridget Leach

Special issue of BMSAES is dedicated to the recently retired papyrus conservator Bridget Leach

Issue 23: June 2015


This special issue of BMSAES is dedicated to the recently retired papyrus conservator Bridget Leach. In tribute to a career of exceptional scope and impact, the current BMSAES issue presents recent research in Egyptology, papyrology and conservation by twelve scholars who worked closely with Bridget in the past. Given her professional focus on Egyptian and Sudanese artefacts from the British Museum, discussions of objects that she conserved, most notably but not exclusively papyri, comprise the lion’s share of this issue. This is complemented by contributions from conservation specialists in charge of renowned papyrus collections internationally.
