Archaeological conservation investigates and helps to preserve the evidence inherent in excavated physical remains of the past.

Participants in Gjakova will focus on object conservation and interpretation at the Ethnographic Museum of Gjakova. Lectures and exercises held during the Camp will cover such topics as the conservation of museum artifacts, principles and methods of documentation, bringing museum objects to life through interpretation, and more. Simple methods used in the excavation and storage of archaeological material can be used to minimise the impact of this sudden change. Serious damage, which cannot be reversed by conservation treatments, will occur if artefacts are not properly cared for during and after excavation.
