Reversibility - Does it exist?
8-10 September 1999

The British Museum Department of Conservation, will hold a three-day
conference on this theme from 8-10 September 1999 in London.
Abstracts are solicited on the theme of reversibility as applied to
cleaning, stabilisation, consolidation, assembly and restoration.
Changes to the physical or chemical properties of objects as a
result of conservation are also relevant.

Papers should explore themes and question current philosophy or
accepted dogma, and should not shrink from controversy when
relevant. The conference will be confined to the portable heritage;
excluding buildings but including mosaics and wall paintings.
Successful authors will be notified in May 1998. Completed texts with
all illustrations must be received by 31 January 1999. (NB,
submission of an abstract is taken as acceptance of this time
