This symposium will focus on the ethical decision making involved in conserving/ restoring historic interiors/ buildings, and the importance of collaboration between heritage organisations.

The Queen’s House, part of Royal Museums Greenwich, has recently reopened to the public after a £3M restoration project. Designed by Inigo Jones for James I’s queen, Anne of Denmark, it is the first Palladian style building in the country. A significant part of the project was the conservation of the King’s Presence Chamber and the painted ceiling in the Queen’s Presence Chamber. 
 
The symposium will focus on the evidence that informs the ethical decision making process. The work on the Queen’s House will be discussed alongside projects from the UK and Europe.
