In this episode of our conservation series, see how new pieces are colour matched with the original Roman glass.

Ceramics and Glass

A big part of the BM collections is made of either metal or of clay-based materials, like pottery and porcelain. The Ceramics, Glass and Metals (CGM) Section of the Department of Conservation looks after these objects.
This team specialises in archaeological and historical ceramics, glass, enamels, faience etc.
