Event description

Description

The Department of Scientific Research of the British Museum will host a one-day symposium on 30th May 2019, featuring innovative approaches to the conservation and scientific investigation of wall paintings. The aim of the symposium is to become a meeting place where conservators and scientists working on wall paintings can exchange their knowledge and experience, facilitating new collaborations. Scientists will become familiar with the existing conservation challenges and conservators will update their knowledge about the most recent scientific developments. The #BMMellon5 symposium will be organised with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Full programme of the symposium is available here. The symposium will take place in the British Museum's Stevenson Lecture Theatre.




Organised by Dr Lucia Pereira Pardo and Dr Lucia N. Melita, Andrew W. Mellon Research Fellows at the British Museum.
