Restoration & Conservation: July 13-19, 2003

Restoration activities of the NW Heroon ended this week until next season. The anastylosis of the Antonine nymphaeum on the north side of the Upper Agora resulted in the completion of a number of its columns and column bases. Meanwhile, two dozen conservators and workmen started pointing the brick-and-rubble walls of the Domestic Area. On all the sites we paid a lot of attention to safety, introducing specifically designed scaffolds, harnesses to prevent falls, and new safety helmets. Our safety managers now hold weekly meetings on each working site, assessing the risk of all planned activities for the coming week.
