The activities of the workshop “ Transporting Heavy Artifacts” started on Monday 9/2/2015 and took place at the heavy artifacts conservation area at the Conservation Center of the Grand Egyptian Museum . The Workshop was held in cooperation with the “ Japan International Cooperation Agency” (JICA), and transporting and packing experts from Nippon Express Co.
The workers of the heavy artifacts area prepared for the work shop a week later by installing a winch for the gate and the scaffolds and packing a statue model for preparing it to be transported.
The workshop includes participating in setting the plan of transporting heavy and complex artifacts. In addition, the Japanese and Egyptian work team members will have field visits to some archeological areas and museums like the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir to set the conceptualization and the scientific methods of Transporting processes in the future.
