The newly integrated conservation laboratory offers practical applications for stabilising and preserving heritage materials.
Supporting the Department of Archaeology’s diverse collections and those from our professional partners, this is a versatile space adaptable for individual projects or large quantities of materials.
Located in PalaeoHub, students and researchers have access to a range of equipment and materials to facilitate the care and protection of artefacts, led by accredited conservation staff, including:
- Small hand tools for micro-excavating and cleaning artefacts
- Dremel Rotary Tools
- Conservation grade polymers for stabilising and refitting heritage materials
- Environmental data logging equipment.
