Week 10 of 12
Module 5: Conservation Interventions and Treatments; Criteria for Selection and Implementation
Today we were rejoined by Giulia Caneva (see Friday 20th May 2011; Biodeterioration) who gave us a lecture on 'Vegetation Control'. Following this we had a laboratory session with Giulia and Ornella Salvadori looking at the samples of biological material that we had removed from the tombs that we're conserving in the Non-Catholic Cemetery and other samples of biology to aid our understanding and identification skills. More details to follow...
