QUESTION: how lead artefacts are restored, 11 Sep 2003, New South Wales Australia
My students would like to know how lead artefacts are restored
ANSWER: 12 Sep 2003
what a huge coincidence that you should write to my website when you have actually taught my son, Harrison Jewson. It was when I found out Harrison was lead poisoned 12 years ago that I was motivated to set up this lead information service which now operates globally. You taught Harry when he came over to Fort St from Summer Hill Primary and he developed a love of science which has since died since he started at Fort St as he doesn't seem to get on with his teacher.
Hopefully his interest will revive next year.
As I did not know the answer to your question, I sent it (as you'll see below) to Leadnet which is an egroup of about 1,000 lead professionals mainly from the United States.
