Pieta Greaves provided an excellent conservation service to a prized item in our collection, namely our 115 year old Antarctic sledge from Scott’s expedition! Her conservation work was first class and we particularly valued her excellent, practical advice and guidance on all aspects of object conservation from safe storage and protection to item removal and display.

Pieta has provided a great deal of invaluable advice and training to the Portable Antiquities Scheme staff, including devising the excellent guidance for finders of archaeological artefacts. All have been consistently excellent and I can't recommend her services highly enough.

Drakon Heritage recently dealt with the conservation assessment of 2473 small finds from my excavations of Perth’s Carmelite friary. The X-Ray plates that they provided of the metalwork are the clearest that I have ever seen and were gratefully welcomed by my finds specialist. As a field archaeologist of 45 years experience I highly recommend taking advantage of their conservation services.
