EXHIBITION: "RESTORED OBJECTS, PRESERVED PAST

RESTORED OBJECTS, Preserved past or the second life of archaeological objects from Ruscino The moment they are freed from the sediment that has covered them for centuries, archaeological objects begin a second life: they lose their original function - crockery, weapon, ornament, tool - to become clues to the history, life and gestures of their owner or maker... These witnesses to the past, weakened by the conditions in which they were buried or discovered, deserve to be protected, restored or reproduced. Extending this second life as long as possible is the mission of the archaeologists and conservator-restorers working on the archaeological collections at the Ruscino site. Whether it's taking samples during excavation, molding, jigsawing painted plaster, removing dust, scraping, gluing, X-raying and reconstructing, or dismantling and reassembling large remains, the exhibition reveals the stages that objects go through after their discovery.
