Repackaging small objects

Object Name: 3 ceramic pot sherds, 5 ceramic bird figurines.

Date: Classical Greek

Repackaging aim:  Creating new housing that provides a secure environment and is ideal for handling purposes.

Method: The shape of each object was cut out of an archival foam called Plastazote® to keep the objects in place. The Plastazote® was fitted into a ‘crystal box’, which allows the objects to be seen without having to remove the box lid. 

Repackaging task completed by UCL conservation student Stephanie Black.
