I’m a seasoned bronze conservator and I can guide you as to what’s good practice and what’s not.

This important book reviews key themes such as the processes underlying corrosion over long periods, how corrosion rates can be measured and materials conserved. After an overview of the study and conservation of metal archaeological artefacts, a group of chapters reviews long term corrosion in metals such as steel, iron and bronze. book review Paik's Virtual Archive: Time, Change, and Materiality in Media Art by Hanna B.
