Lynn Wootten talks about Conservation and the recent work in the Salisbury Museum. Link1 and Link2

We are sorry for those who missed Lynn's talk. It was fascinating. The work of a Laboratory Conservator is obviously very laborious but , in the examples she showed us, also very exciting. The tasks of conserving and restoring a large Roman glass vessel and a 3000 year old Bronze Age shield was fascinating to watch.
