CAM Issue 74: Archaeology
Issue 74 of CAM features an article about how archaeological artefacts are being preserved by being protected from the natural forces of decay and destruction. Smith conceived a series of illustrations to accompany the feature - conceiving the ideas with the illustrator Angus Grieg. Each illustration included a witty allusion to and indication of, the decay and destructive threat to each type of artefact - one selected from each major university museum in Cambridge.
Chemical preservation of wood from Mary Rose.
Cambridge University Dept of Archaeology.
Pest control of stuffed animals.
Museum of Zoology.
Ultra-Violet light study of Egyptian mummies.
Moth destruction of Polar Exploration artifacts.
