The nature of pigments and dyes, as detected by scientific methods, and the role of color in use in ancient palaces, historic paintings, medieval manuscripts, and ancient European textiles will also be presented. Additionally, the scientific discovery of the first authentic Biblical Tekhelet from ancient Israel will be announced and discussed.
