What you see is not what you got: changes to the appearance of objects

Exploring the ageing and deterioration processes that affect the way an object looks.

David Saunders, Keeper of Conservation and Scientific Research, looks at examples where, through ageing or deterioration, what we see today differs from what the person who made or commissioned the object saw, and explores the processes behind these transformations.
