Villa of the Mysteries, Pompeii

An interesting article on the methods being used in the restoration of the Villa of the Mysteries, Pompeii.

“For more than a century, there have been many efforts, some successful, some less so, to conserve the villa’s walls, floors, and frescoes. Now, several teams of archaeologists, architects, chemists, and physicists have embarked on a yearlong project, using both time-tested methods and innovative technologies, to remedy the damage done by earlier conservators and by time, and to restore the villa and its remarkable interior once again.”
