  • Introduction

    Historical objects such as ‘Building, Stone, Wall painting, Textiles, Wood, Metal, Manuscripts, Glass, Pottery ... etc’ which have been excavated or already in museums are usually effected and contaminated by different deterioration factors. Without conservation process, most historical objects will perish, and all important historic data will be lost. Now a new method for restoration and conservation of historical objects has been developed.

    1. Conservation Ethics
    2. Preventive Conservation
    3. Documentation and Documenting methods
    4. Cleaning Methods
    5. Exhibited and Storage
    6. Laser in Archaeology Conservation
    7. Bio-deteriorations Control
    8. Biotechnology process in conservation
