The aim of this meeting is to bring together conservators,
scientists and curators with an interest in the methods by which
artefacts have been manufactured, repaired (both in antiquity and
modern times) and conserved by joining together a series of
components, using such techniques as gluing, casting, soldering,
luting, etc. The range of the programme is broad and included
ancient and ethnographic examples of manufacture, repair and re-use
of multi-component artefacts, methods for recognising and making
potential joins, modern conservation and repair methods and
materials, and methods of display, including the ethics of
revealing/concealing joins and repairs. The meeting will be of
interest to conservators, conservation scientists, museum scientists
and curators and the conference proceedings will be published in a
volume to be produced by Archetype Publications. The conference will
be in English, and will include both oral and poster presentations.

The conference fee is 150 (80 students and BM Friends) until 18
January 2008 (after which time it will rise to 170 and 90). This fee
will include refreshments (including lunch), an evening reception, a
private view of the major Museum exhibition "The First Emperor:
China's Terracotta Army" and a copy of the conference proceedings.
Registration on the day is also possible but catering will not be
provided to these attendees.
