Papyri Research at Berkeley

This week I’ve been at UC-Berkeley with Professors Lincoln Blumell and Thomas Wayment and fellow-undergrad Erik Yingling learning ancient document conservation techniques, researching papyri, and preparing for the papyrology seminar this summer at BYU. The faculty at the Center for the Tebtunis Papyri and the Bancroft Library’s conservation department were very helpful and patient with us, although I think they’re a little nervous about how BYU’s collection will turn out when we’re finished with it.
