    Reblogged this on DIANABUJA'S BLOG: Africa, The Middle East, Agriculture, History and Culture and commented:
    Information on the cleaning of coptic murals at the monastery of Surian, Wadi Natrun Egypt, with a video having Coptic chants – very nice. Wadi al-Natrun, west of Cairo, contains some of the most interesting of Egypt-s monasteries and earlier pharaonic remains.
