Herculaneum: Conservation of the Tablinum of the House of the Bicentenary
This project aims to address conservation issues of decorated architectural surfaces at Herculanuem through a pilot project to study and conserve the decorated architectural surfaces in the tablinum of the House of the Bicentenary through background research, environmental monitoring and climate improvement strategies, scientific study, preventive and remedial treatment planning, testing, implementation, post-treatment monitoring, and maintenance. In addition, the project aims to inform the conservation of decorated surfaces in the Vesuvian region, which show similar problems as a result of burial by the 79 CE eruption of Vesuvius and subsequent excavation and past restorations.
