Regeneration of a historic city block: the example of the relocation of the historic Atelier building to the cloister area of the Congregation of the Resurrection in Krakow

Because the building is not yet listed as a heritage building under conservation control, it can be demolished. However both sides, the developer and the Congregation of the Resurrection, are aware of the value of this place and they are considering agreeing on the relocation of the structure. This building has to be preserved as

Possibilities for Exploring the La Tène Swords and Choosing the Appropriate Method of Conservation Intervention


The study deals with the possibility of exploring the La Tène swords and choosing the appropriate method of conservation intervention. The published results are based on an internal grant from the National Museum running between 2015 and 2016, which was closely focused on "The Exploration of Celtic Iron Arms from the Archaeological Collection of the National Museum" and which involved 67 items. The purpose of the internal grant was to find and to map hidden decorations or other structural elements on the La Tène swords that had been preserved in the past. Preferred were the preserved swords with unremoved layers of anti-corrosion products, whereby there is a greater presumption of the occurrence of the above-mentioned elements than when the cleaning of swords was specifically of a chemical nature.
