London Metropolitan Archives
<URL:> is the largest local
government archive repository in the United Kingdom and is the
primary source of archive information for the capital with
collections spanning the period 1130 to 2003. Following a successful
bid to The Pilgrim Trust, we are looking for a paper conservator to
carry out conservation treatments on 18th and 19th century ms

The project, known as the 'London Signatures project' will conserve
original wills and related testamentary documents from the
Consistory Court of the Bishop of London 1751 to 1858.  It provides
an opportunity to work in a busy, up-to-date studio in central
London and would ideally suit a newly qualified conservator. The
successful candidate will clean, flatten and repair paper and
parchment documents in preparation for microfilming, working with a
part-time conservator who will supervise the project. A group of
volunteers will be indexing the material prior to conservation
