Open Lecture - It is surprising that things can be preserved even as well as they are.
George McGavin Our upcoming Talk entitled “It is surprising that things can be preserved even as well as they are” is by Mark Norman of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. Mark’s presentation will chart the development of the Ashmolean and its world class collections from its founding in the seventeenth century to the present day and how the conservator’s role has evolved over the past 100 years from one of traditional craft-based restoration and repair to today’s question-led, scientifically informed and minimal approach.

Frossard Theatre on Saturday 25th November at 1 pm. Members: free entry; non-members: &gbp;5 payable at the door.

La Société Guernesiaise was founded in 1882 to encourage the study of the history, natural history, geography and geology of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, the conservation of the Bailiwick’s natural environment and the preservation of its historic buildings and monuments. 125 years later, this is as much true as it was then and the Société is the second largest landowner after the States of Guernsey and is very active in promoting, conserving and studying all aspects of island life.
