El Soler Blasco Museum, in collaboration with the CIRNE Foundation, have restored three pieces from the XNUMXnd and XNUMXrd centuries, found in the excavations of Frog of Cat of Gorgos. An amphora, a bottle and a jug are the three elements restored by Mayte Gay. The director of the Soler Blasco museum, Ximo Bolufer, has pointed out that these amphorae found were used to export Dianium wine.
The restorer has commented that after carrying out a first individual study of each piece, a cleaning with distilled water and the joining of the fragments with a glue material was carried out. Mayte Gay pointed out that the 95% of the pieces had been obtained from the jar, while the 60% from the bottle and 45% from the amphora.
Mayte explained that when pieces are missing pieces are made with a plaster of a color similar to the original but that is distinguished to give the whole element shape. The restored pieces have been chosen by the museum and pieces that did not have prevailed.
The excavations have had the help of the City of Gata and the cost of the restoration has been 2.999 euros by the Cirne Foundation. For the next campaign, in 2020, electromagnetic surveys will be carried out to know where the ovens are in the area of La Rana.
