During the summer 2000 rescue excavation of the site of Zeugma in Turkey, about 800 square meters of floor mosaics were removed from site and then taken to the Museum of Gaziantep. In 2001 CCA, Centro di Conservazione Archeologica of Rome with funds from the PHI, Packard Humanities Institute, began a conservation treatment planned in order to have the mosaics ready for museum display. This paper describe the techniques used for re-laying on panels, cleaning, restoring and protecting the mosaics.
