Victoria began her studies in archaeology and classics in Berlin at the Freie Universitat. After several years as a practicing archaeologist and conservator of objects and architecture from the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Modern Age in Berlin and Brandenburg, she sought further education at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden, studying the conservation of mural paintings and historic surfaces. Conservation of architectural surfaces has taken her to work in Africa in the Sudan as well as Britain for the Chedworth mosaics. Fluent in German, French, Latin, Italian and English, Victoria is a freelance conservator who also works in a bookstore specializing in art literature.
Chedworth RevealedIn July 2010 we revealed and protected mosaics at Chedworth Roman Villa. This was part of a major project to improve visitor access and conservation of the historic fabric. We had a wonderful time and met visitors from all over the world. It was fabulous to share our work and talk about it on-site.
- The excavation and conservation work was captured by this blog as it happened. The 2010 blog is no longer maintained but will still be available as an archive and on-line resource.
- The new cover buildings will be complete in 2012. We’ll be back then to finish the excavations and reveal the full 30m of corridor mosaic!
