Restoration of pottery

01. 06. 2022 – 15. 06. 2023

At the exhibition Restoration of Pottery in the Knez’s Room at the Permanent Archaeological Exhibition were shown the restoration processes used on archaeological pottery, to save these most common archaeological finds from decay and to restore the vessels to their former glory. Pottery is the most common archaeological find, and restoration processes in the restoration workshop are saving it from decay and restoring the vessels to their former glory.

The panels showed the entire journey of the object: from basic protection during excavation, to cleaning, consolidation, reassembling, replenishing missing and destroyed parts, and finally colour matching the replenished parts. In addition to the pictorial displays on the panels, the individual steps of the work were also visible in the showcases, which presented the Iron Age vessels in the various stages of restoration.
