    Syllabus

    This unit develops student understanding of the roles and properties of surfaces and coatings, and the ethical and interpretive issues raised by restoration and reconstruction. Practical projects and exercises will be used to demonstrate methods of examining and treating surfaces and to discuss issues of authenticity and financial and cultural 'cost-benefit' equations. Students completing this unit will be able to identify and implement conservation treatments for surfaces, and develop a solution for a complex heritage restoration issue.
