Abstract (in English)

An overview of research on the conservation of stone monuments, sculpture, and archaeological sites. The second edition of Stone Conservation: An Overview of Current Research provides a strategic overview of the past fifteen years in stone conservation research and an updated critique of the field’s strengths and weaknesses, with recommendations for future research. The goal of this second edition was to retain key characteristics of the first edition (notably its brevity, informal character, and pointed suggestions), while covering the recent explosion of new research, enlarging the discussion of preventive conservation, and adding new sections on rock art and other subjects. The selected bibliography drawn from this research effort is included in this new edition as an appendix and will be a useful starting point for many researchers.
