    DescriptionConservation Skills provides an overview of the issues facing conservators of historic and artistic works. It not only describes the nature of conservation but also provides an ethical framework to which the conservation of objects can be related. Drawing on case studies of well-known objects such as the body of Lindow Man and the Statue of Liberty it addresses the following issues: * perception, judgement and learning * reasons for preserving the past * the nature and history of conservation * conservation ethics * recording, investigating, cleaning objects * stabilisation and restoration * preventive conservation * decision making and responsibilities.

    Review quote
    "This especially valuable, clearly written, and well-documented overview considers major cognitive issues that confront conservators of historic and artistic works...Superb examples range from Paleolithic cave art to cathedral mosaics, shrunkenheads to Spitfire aircraft, and the Statue of Liberty to the Portland Vase." -C.C. Kolb, CHOICE, May 2001
