Tintern Abbey. A Record of Repairs Executed Since 1913 Under the Direction of H.M. Office of Works. Part I - Survey of the Ruins and Invention of Inconspicuous Structural Expedients

A TRUE record of the repairs of Tintern Abbey will not fail to indicate that a very great advance in the scientific analysis, understanding and treatment of ancient monuments was made possible by cxpericnce as the work progressed, and that as the result of this fuller knowledge certain expedients were adopted in the later stages of the work which would have been considered absolutely beyond the scope of the conservator’s art at the commencement of operations.
