Conservation, Heritage Management and Sustainability
Archaeological investigations are increasingly focusing on the importance of integrating the future conservation of sites and artefacts as part of planning the initial investigation.
The Herculaneum Conservation Project is the BSR’s most significant engagement in the area of heritage management, and brings with it substantial partnerships with scientific conservators, ICCROM, and local entities.
Nevertheless, the conservation agenda at Herculaneum must be seen in the context of the wider connections between cultural heritage and sustainability more generally.
The BSR is proud to support the Journal “Conservation Science in Cultural Heritage” (n.13-2013) (http://conservation-science.unibo.it/)
