Research Areas and Topics
The University of Lincoln’s Centre for Conservation and Cultural Heritage was formed in 2011 to co-ordinate academic research activities in conservation, history, and science in relation to the heritage sector.
Members share an interest in historic material culture and its conservation and analysis. They have access to science-based methodologies for materials analysis and the historical expertise needed to articulate the significance of this analysis. Members work with the museum sector as conservators, curators, and consultants.
Research themes of the group include architectural paint research, cultural history, and historic and ancient materials.
Students on this programme will receive a free tool kit and personal protection equipment for use during their studies.
This programme is designed to provide students from non-conservation backgrounds with the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge, and understanding required to undertake the study of conservation at Master’s level. For others, it may provide a foundation for further training or work in fields allied to conservation.
