Conference on stone

From: Clara Willett <clara.willett<-at->
Date: Thursday, November 1, 2012
The Stone and Wall Paintings Group are holding a one day conference
regarding the conservation of some more troublesome building stones.

Following the success of Problem Stones 1 conference in 2007, we
will be looking at several more stones and revisiting a couple that
have been subject to further investigation.

Topics include: blue lias, sandstone, clunch, purbeck marble and an
overview of English Heritage's Strategic Stone Study.

The conference is being held at the Tower of London. Delegates will
also have an opportunity of a guided tour by one of Historic Royal
Palaces' building surveyors.

Places are limited, so please book early. Programme details and
registration can be found at
