This issue comprises an article presenting the outputs of a
multi-disciplinary collaboration of scholars from the Departments
of Egypt and Sudan, Middle East and Conservation at the British
Museum. It combines research into, and conservation of, a group
of glazed tiles found at the Assyrian city of Nimrud, which depict
military scenes in Egypt. The renewed study of these long-known
objects with, as presented here, the first detailed drawings and
photographs of all the surviving fragments, in addition to newly
identified and discovered fragments, enables the authors to
thoroughly reassess the discovery, production and narrative
content of the tiles in relation to other known later-Sargonid
glazed material and artwork. It demonstrates how the close study
of objects and archives, even seemingly well-published material,
can yield significant results in understanding key issues, in
this case the development of architecture and Egyptian influence
on Assyrian art.
