What is a smoke sponge and how is it used to look after fragile objects? Can you spot the conservation work on a Bronze Age spear head? What can looking at an object under the microscope tell us? Go behind the scenes with Conservator, Jackie Chapman-Gray, and discover the work taking place in our Conservation lab in a unique, interactive tour. This activity is part of our annual day-festival, Pitt Fest. Tours at 11.30 & 15.00. £5 (Booking required).
