The Department of Conservation and Scientific Research at the
British Museum is about to move into brand new studios and labs
within the World Conservation and Exhibitions Centre


In preparing for the move, a number of items of equipment or old
instruments have been identified which are either no longer required
or are surplus to requirement.  Unfortunately, because of the
demands of the move, it has not been possible to check whether
everything is still in working order and we cannot therefore
guarantee its safety and users should make the necessary checks
prior to use.  A first list of redundant equipment is now available
and can be viewed at


Further lists of equipment will be available shortly and the lists
will be regularly updated if new items become available.

In addition, a number of items of equipment which are known not to
be functioning but which may be useful for spare parts have also
been included in the list.

All of the items on the list are being offered on a first come,
first served basis to anyone who is interested.  No charge for items
will be made but donations to the Department of Conservation and
Scientific Research are welcomed.  Anyone wishing to take items must
arrange for the collection and transportation of these items.

For further information, please contact Helen Hewitt
