The “Turin King List” also known as “Royal Canon” has attracted the attention of Egyptologists since it entered the Museo Egizio in 1824 as part of the Drovetti collection. Over many years, Kim Ryholt has studied the papyrus and proposed a new arrangement of the fragments alongside a new interpretation of the text. The restoration was done in 2022 by Myriam Krutzsch (Berlin).The publication of the "King List" on the verso and the "Tax register" on the recto by Kim Ryholt, Fredrik Hagen and Rob Demarée is ongoing and planed for 2023.
The so-called “Turin Papyrus Map” or “Goldmine Papyrus”, despite being one of the most famous papyri from Egypt, has never been published properly. This is about to change due to the research of Andreas Dorn and Stéphane Polis, who are preparing a proper publication of both the map on the recto and all the verso texts on this more than two meter-long papyrus.

Thanks to the support of institutions such as Gli Scarabei (Associazione Sostenitori Museo Egizio di Torino) or the Fondazione CRC Cuneo, the Museo Egizio can employ highly experienced papyrus restorers who take care of the conservation and new arrangement of some of the famous Turin papyri such as the so-called “Erotic-Satirical Papyrus” or the "Turin King List".
The Rivista del Museo Egizio includes a number of articles focusing on the written material culture housed at the Museo Egizio. The Museo Egizio launched a research monographs series Studi del Museo Egizio in four languages to make research and information on the Museum’s collection as widely available as possible. A number of monographs are dedicated to the publication of Turin papyrus manuscripts. Furthermore, free download of online publication within the series Formazione e Ricerca include publications dedicated to papyri as well.
