Conservation for Archaeologists

The course provides an introduction to archaeological conservation. It includes conservation on excavations as well as in a laboratory, stressing both the ethical care of objects and the contribution that the conservator can make to a fuller understanding of the object and the site.

Practical sessions with risk assessments, lifting, consolidation / joining of ceramics and packaging are used to develop fundamental skills.

The course aims to give an understanding of the importance of conservation and of its place within archaeological projects.
