Using this technique, it is possible to clarify the decorative history of a room, building or its exterior. These findings are crucial to the detective work that informs interpretation of the often complex story of an historic building and Lincoln Conservation, as part of the project team, help the custodians make decisions as to how it should be interpreted to the public.
