Explore Your Archive: Meet the Conservator on 21st November
- 12th November 2013
Come and find out about what a conservator does and what techniques are used to clean, repair and protect our precious manuscripts to ensure they will be safe for many more hundreds of years.
On Thursday 21st November Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service’s Conservator will be explaining what she does and demonstrating some of the techniques she uses. We have over 12 miles of shelves of archives, covering the past 900 years.
Rhonda Niven, Conservator, Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service, said, “Most of my work as conservator happens behind the scenes, but we know people are fascinated with the process, so this is a great opportunity to find out he we look after the documents.”
This is part of Explore Your Archive, an awareness campaign about the amazing resources we have in archives across the country.
Places are free but should be booked in advance. Ring 01905 766352 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Explore the Past desk on level 2 in The Hive
