About CU Conservation, Cabinet of Curiosities

Welcome to Conservation@Cardiff!

If you’re interested in conservation then you are part of a very special breed of people.  Part scientist, part artist, part project manager: conservators are the quintessential multi-tasker!  So what does it take to be a lab-coat wearing, scalpel wielding heritage warrior and what do you have to go through to get there?  We hope you’ll find some answers in our student-led blog.

We hope to update at least every other week and we’re open to comments and suggestions. There are many types of categories to browse: from internship experiences to volunteering to conferences, alumni updates and interesting objects and treatments.  A little something for everyone. We will also provide short profiles of our posters and general conservation-related information and links from around the world.

Let us know how we are doing and please feel free to contact us if you want to link to us.
