Conservation Takeover

11 June 2020

Some of our conservation alumni from around the world check in for the department’s 100th anniversary!

Since the 1970s, Archaeological Conservation has been an important part of the department. Cardiff Conservation alumni have since gone on to work all over the world! They’ll be taking over this page to show off some of their projects, give you the tools to do some Field Conservation, and doing a LIVE ‘Ask Me Anything’ event to answer all your conservation questions!

QUICK TIPS FOR DETECTORISTS!


OBJECTIVELY DISASTEROUS OBJECTS

CU CONSERVATION ALUMNI RECALL OBJECT DISASTERS THEY EXPERIENCED DURING THEIR TIME AS STUDENTS

CHOOSE YOUR OWN CONSERVATION ADVENTURE!

(Not object in the game – we don’t do spoilers!)

Have you ever thought about becoming a conservator? Well, now’s your chance! It’s time to play a game of ‘CHOOSE YOUR CONSERVATION‘! See if you can get an object from excavation to safely on display!

(oh, you’re already a conservator? Are you sure? Maybe you should test your skills! Play here.)


If you missed our LIVE AMA, you can watch it here! Listen as Ashley and Jerrod talk about some of their favourite experiences and objects, give tips on fieldwork, and discuss what Cardiff means to them!

CARDIFF CONSERVATION – THE EARLY YEARS
Professor Dave Watkinson has been part of the department (non-consecutively) since the first round of Conservation students completed their degrees! Read about some of his reflections on nearly 50 years of Conservation at Cardiff here.
