Problem solving is a huge part of a Conservators job.

Here in our purpose built Conservation Lab on campus we use all kinds of materials to ensure that objects are treated at the highest standards, sometimes we even use Lego!

In order to preserve these shoes smaller fragments and weak areas required joining an re-enforcement so small pieces aren't separated and lost in storage, handling and transportation.

Joining the fragments to line up exactly is particularly challenging when the tinted spider tissue used to join them isn't see through! For this reason Zoë built a custom lightbox from Lego and clear perspex placed over a mirror so that they can see the underside of the shoe; without having to turn it over while the joins are drying in place.

This photo shows a medieval shoe from approximately 1500-1600 AD.
This object was dug up in 1961 from a midden pit in Overgate Dundee, Scotland. The shoes came to us for remedial conservation work and repackaging to preserve them for another 500 years!

The completed object is scheduled to be displayed at the Old Objects New Lives, Conservation Behind the Scenes exhibition as part of the University of Lincoln's
Location: University of Lincoln, Peter de Wint Building, PDW 1005
Save the Dates: 26th - 30th May, 1st - 5th June
