Clearly laid out and fully illustrated, this is the only comprehensive book on the subject at an introductory level.
Perfect as a practical reference book for professional and students who work with excavated materials, and as an introduction for those training as archaeological conservators.
'The result of nearly half a working lifetime spent teaching archaeological conservation … it will become essential reading for students of conservation. As a mine of information it succeeds admirably, and no archaeological conservator can afford to be without it. It will be welcomed with open arms by a profession which is starved of text books' - W.A. Oddy, Minerva
'As a textbook and guide to the problems, techniques and solutions in archaeological conservation this book is unrivalled' - The International Journal of Nautical Archaeology and Underwater Exploration
