A one day seminar in Adelaide is being convened on 24 October 2003 to provide practical advice on the conservation of cemetery sites. Experts will discuss differences between cemeteries and burial rites; the causes of deterioration; the conservation of stone monuments and metal elements; the use of modern products to make good old problems……finding old skills today, and the role of volunteers in caring for this important part of our history. The presentations will be supplemented with a site visit to historic West Terrace Cemetery.
