This study is carried out in collaboration with the Italian Archaeological Mis- sion in Antinoe, within the program of surveys and research for the preserva- tion of the Temple of Ramesses II. The project aims to improve the current level of knowledge on the materials employed in the temple complex throu- gh an interdisciplinary analytical approach. A long-term and broader goal is the development of guidelines for the characterization, diagnosis, selection of compatible materials for restoration and establishment of procedures for conservation and sustainable maintenance. The results can help to provide a clearer picture of some materials used in architecture during the Ramesside era. This phase of research focuses on the characterization of the gypsum- based binders.
