Guardian’s double-sided, anti-reflective Guardian Clarity™ glass was selected for use in the display cases, to provide the public with the best possible viewing experience.

The British Museum will this year provide the UK public with an  up-close look at a stunning collection of artifacts discovered beneath  the Mediterranean seabed.

The BP exhibition Sunken cities: Egypt’s lost worlds represents the Museum’s first large-scale exhibition of underwater discoveries and a number of objects will be displayed in special cases made using high-technology glass from Guardian Glass, a leading global supplier of high-quality commercial, residential and interior glass products.

Guardian’s double-sided, anti-reflective Guardian Clarity™ glass was selected for use in the display cases, to provide the public with the best possible viewing experience while also offering protection and security for the exhibition’s 300 objects.

The underwater objects come from the site of two lost Egyptian cities submerged several metres beneath the seabed at the mouth of the Canopic branch of the River Nile for more than a thousand years.

Astonishingly well preserved by the underwater setting, the recovered objects include pristine monumental statues, fine metalware and gold jewellery. The exhibition is supplemented by important loans from Egyptian museums rarely seen before outside Egypt and a select group of objects from the British Museum’s own collection.

The nonprofit European Institute for Underwater Archaeology (or IEASM, for Institut Européen d’Archéologie Sous-Marine), in collaboration with the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities, undertook the expeditions to uncover the artifacts.

Guardian worked closely with the institute in staging this traveling exhibition, with a view to enhancing the display of these precious objects, while also providing them with maximum protection. Overall, some 200 square meters of Clarity specialty glass is being used in the exhibition.

Guardian Clarity is created using the most advanced magnetron sputtering glass coating technology. Its residual reflection colour is a soft neutral blue, which, in combination with Guardian UltraClear™ substrate, allows it to provide maximum transparency while minimising unwanted reflection and glare.

The BP exhibition Sunken cities: Egypt’s lost worlds is at the British Museum from 19 May - 27 November 2016 - book now at britishmuseum.org/sunkencities.
