The main goals of the 2011–2012 season included (1) the conservation of the paintings on the walls and ceilings, (2) the conservation of the cracks in the pillar, and (3) the conservation of the sarcophagus lid. During the course of our work, close observations and supplementary analyses were undertaken using non-destructive X-ray (XRF/XRD) and Raman spectroscopy. This paper describes some of the new findings on the materials and techniques used in the production of wall paintings and the red-granite sarcophagus lid, as well as some of the conservation issues involved with the site.
In particular, our focus was on how to stabilise the cracked pillar 3 in Room J. This was complicated because the pillar has paintings on its surfaces. The temporary wooden prop set up in 1990 hindered the aesthetic value and hampered conservation of the paintings on its surface. Meetings were organised on-site and off-site with specialists including engineers, architects, conservators, archaeologists, and SCA representatives, to discuss the restoration procedures and materials. It was agreed that the first step should be the replacement of the wooden support with five latchet belts.
