Conserving Historic Vessels
The eagerly awaited third volume in the practical guidance series Understanding Historic Vessels, for all those with an interest in ship conservation. Conserving Historic Vessels is a richly illustrated, 200 page publication, produced with funding support from the Headley Trust and the Society for Nautical Research. It is an invaluable resource, designed to explain the key principles behind conservation, which will help specialists and non-specialists alike develop an understanding of their project, its significance and the most appropriate conservation route to adopt in each circumstance. A series of case studies throughout offer examples from which to draw and the book is further supported by an online bibliography and regularly updated technical resource section, freely available from the National Historic Ships’ website.
