Course Description

Our historic houses are an integral part of our national and cultural identity. Layered with accretions of the centuries, their exteriors and interiors often bear witness to changes in politics, fashion, ownership, and religious turmoil. They are at risk from not only human intervention, but also environmental and biological agents. This lecture will explore the history of conservation of the historic house and the National Trust, the risks posed to historic house collections, and how professionals work to preserve them.
