Science for Conservators


About the Series

The Science for Conservators series is now being revised and fully updated, and it will be extended in scope. The original series has provided key basic texts for conservators throughout the world since its publication in the late 1980s. Scientific concepts are basic to the conservation of artefacts of every type, and these introductory volumes provide an essential theoretical background for conservators who have entered the field without scientific training. It is designed for pre-programme, student and personal study, and also serves as a checklist of scientific terms for those working in English as a second or third language.
