The book ‘Manual of good conservation practices in archaeological excavations’ by Belén Santos Alarcón, is an essential work for all those who want to start in the world of archeology and who want to follow a series of guidelines that are not always taught to students who carry out practices in sites.

There are innumerable problems that occur in different archaeological sites around the world, caused by poor practice when carrying out basic tasks that facilitate the conservation of both the sites themselves and the objects that are extracted from them.

For this reason, Belén Santos has prepared a complete manual of good conservation practices within the archaeological field (with special interest in excavation and all its fields), which seeks to be a reference guide for all archeology professionals.

Includes a number of definitions for facilitate conversation between restorers / curators and archaeologists:

  • A set of basic conservation guidelines in deposits: excavation, storage, transport, etc.
  • A set of practical cases of bad practice in excavations archaeological sites and their possible solutions.
  • A case study of the Orientales Baths from the archaeological park of L’Alcúdia (Elche).

The author, in turn, reflect on the figure of the restorer / curator in the excavations and proposes a debate on the need for interdisciplinary teams between these two areas.
