Three block lifted hoards, one having been fully excavated and 3 partially excavated in the filed prior to block-lifting, were moved to the conservation lab for micro-excavation and documentation.
Date completed : 30 January 2019 Duration : 12 Weeks
The aim of conservation was to maximise the information that can be gathered from the hoards, this could include any environmental material (plant remains), the order in which the objects went into the hoard or conservation issues. Once all the objects were removed, they were x-rayed and photographed individually. Selected objects were chosen for conservation.
