From Africa to the museum archive in Ingelheim

At the beginning of the 20th century Carlo von Erlanger brought several special finds back with him to Ingelheim on the Rhine, certainly not thinking that among other things a historical camel saddle would ever attract attention.

The staff at the Museum bei der Kaiserpfalz in Ingelheim were looking for ways and means to preserve these archival treasures and finally found a solution. In collaboration with the company KLUG-CONSERVATION several two-piece type KS 16 type boxes were custom designed to store these valuable three-dimensional objects – thus preserving for posterity. The KS 16 boxes are made from ageing resistant corrugated board FW 3.0 mm – strictly in accordance with the ISO 9706 standard.

We would like to thank Mrs. Sabine Strauch-Warzel from the Museum bei der Kaiserpfalz, Ingelheim am Rhein, for the pictures and the permission to publish this article.
