Kelsey Museum of Archaeology Conservator Suzanne Davis will provide a brief introduction to the field of conservation: what conservators do and where they work, how to become a conservator, and some of the big-picture issues conservators are concerned about today.

As a specialist in archaeological conservation, Davis will then describe how her work supports the mission of the University of Michigan's Kelsey Museum, both in Ann Arbor and further afield, specifically at archaeological excavations at Abydos, Egypt and El Kurru, Sudan.

Her talk will feature case studies from each of these locations: exploring museum-based conservation of limestone funerary stelae, on-site conservation of wood figurines at Abydos, Egypt, and the preservation of ancient graffiti at the site of El Kurru, in Sudan.
