Building archaeology can reconstruct the history of a building or ruin using observations and measurements of the structure to create a building timeline. In conjunction with other evidence, this is vital to developing a conservation plan for a building and its surroundings. He will also share how attitudes to the conservation of heritage structures have changed over time.
