“Why Is It Going to Take So Long to Get the Turret on Display?”

Senior Conservator Will Hoffman

USS Monitor conservation staff are often asked, “why is going to take so long to get the gun turret and other artifacts on display?” This lecture will provide an overview of the treatment processes for some of the signature objects within the Monitor collection.

Explanation will be given as to why conservation will take so long. The presentation will focus on the challenges associated with the preservation of the largest marine archaeological metals project in the world, and give the audience a front seat view into the decision-making process for artifact treatment.
