Abstract

Conservation decision-making is a critical com- ponent of professional practice, which responds to a variety of external sources of information and data in order to make informed judge- ments. Time, expertise and perspective form the foundation of heuristic methodologies that facilitate decision-making in participatory pro- cesses but often challenge consensus. These concepts can be understood through active reflexive practice, whereby decisions are inter- rogated and the challenges brought by time, expertise and perspective understood. Case studies spanning varying settings including the archaeological field, museum and univer- sity illustrate aspects of this process and provide insight into conservation practice and its impact on artefact interpretation.
