Glossary of conservation terms of wall painting and architectonic surfaces

From: Barry Knight <barry.knight<-at->

I was pleased to see this initiative to develop a multi-lingual
illustrated glossary of conservation terms in the field of wall
paintings--this is something that would be valuable in all fields of
conservation, not only to promote the mobility of conservators, but
mostly to reduce the opportunities for misunderstanding.  I think it
would be very valuable if the project partners collaborated with CEN
346 - the European Standards Committee for the conservation of
cultural heritage, and that the glossary became (eventually) a
European Standard. This would ensure its wide diffusion and
acceptance in all European countries, and would also provide an
on-going framework for the revision and updating of the glossary,
something that a fixed-term project cannot do.
