Inside an Islamic document restoration facility on al Haram al-Sharif

image of Mouhannad with Byzantine sarcophagus, al Haram al-Sharif Jerusalem

 

 

 

 

When the restorers take a coffee break, they share the break room with the original Byzantine builder of the house. That’s Mouhannad with the original occupant, who lived there in the 5th century CE! That’s the guy’s hat (the dead Byzantine’s, not Mouhannad’s). It is made of tightly-wound cotton gauze fashioned into a kind of helmet.
