Abstract

Conservation scientists at the Institute of Archaeology have a longstanding interest in how the growth of salt crystals damages ancient buildings, wall paintings and objects in museums. They are now participating in a European research consortium that is investigating novel methods of reducing salt damage. The Institute's role in the project is to assess how environmental conditions affect the process of salt damage and to examine how salt crystallization might be inhibited.
