What is "Conservation"?

Conservation is a discipline concerned with the preservation of cultural artifacts. It includes such activities as examination, documentation, environmental control, and interventive treatment (also called Restoration). As the key objective is to maximize the lifespan of the object, conservators adhere to guiding ethical principles such as minimal intervention, treatment “reversibility”, and thorough documentation. Conservation exists to extend the educational and enjoyment benefits of artifacts for the longest time (and therefore the most people) possible.
