With a focus on preventive conservation, English Heritage (EH) will develop a series of damage functions for materials in indoor environments. Canvas paintings will be investigated by modelling and experimental testing of the influence of relative humidity (RH) on their chemical and physical degradation on a molecular level. Iron, Roman glass, Medieval European glass, and stone will be investigated by exposing material in a series of selected representative indoor environments, monitoring relevant parameters (temperature, RH, the deposition and composition of particulates, etc.) and measuring the corrosion rate over a 42-month period. This process will allow the team to create parameters for more sustainable environmental control decisions. Looking forward to sharing their findings!
