Remedial conservation can be described as all actions directly applied to an item or a group of items aimed at arresting current damaging processes or reinforcing their structure. These actions are only carried out when the items are in such a fragile condition or deteriorating at such a rate, that they could be lost in a relatively short time. These actions sometimes modify the appearance of the items.
Remedial conservation was undertaken by Historic England’s Archaeological Conservator, Angela Middleton. Due to the diversity of materials excavated from the London, she adopted a range of different treatment options.
