Before the salt mummies from the mine in Zanjān can be presented to the public in an exhibition, these unique finds are examined in more detail, cleaned and preserved at the Research Centre for Conservation of Cultural Relics in Tehran. Some of the finds also have to be reconstructed, since not all the individual parts have stood the test of time in some cases. With the ceramics in particular, which boast a specific form and structure, in-depth expertise is required.
