Are there books or a book with the depiction of the hieroglpyhs in the colors they were thought be? This would be interesting for me to see. Also techniques of how they would find out which colors were painted would be important to me in the book, if there was such a book.

Quote:
Systematic excavation campaigns started at Qau el-Kebir at the beginning of the century, under the supervision of Ernesto Schiaparelli, Director of the Egyptian Museum of Turin. The archaeological area was characterised by the tombs of the nobles, the governors of nomarchs Wahka I and II and Ibu during the first half of the second millenium B.C., under the reigns of Amenemhat II, Senwosret II and Amenemhat III (XIIth dynasty). The funeral monuments were damaged, but the painted statues and wall-paintings were preserved in an exceptional way. Restoration and research on the painting techniques are part of a project of the Egyptian Museum of Turin. These activities involve chemical analysis of pigments and painting techniques.
