Abstract

Engineering relics should not be assessed as individual items but as assemblages, collections and systems. A method of assessment according to an established set of criteria is presented. Conservation of relics as individual items or systems should not attempt to make them appear like new but rather should make them operative, appear well maintained and thoroughly interpreted. Whenever possible relics should be conserved in their working millieu and should be relocated only as a last resort.
