Roman Bath Famous Romans and Britain

These figures made each from two pieces of Bath stone, were carved in the studio of George Lawson and  in 1887 and represent Roman emperors generals involved with Britain.  The environment of the Roman Baths is very damp and these figures on the balustrade of the Great Baths terrace  are prone to a great throughput of moisture.  This drying and wetting process has been exacerbated by the hard cement joint between the two stones causing increased  exfoliation in this part of the figure. The partners of the newly formed Nimbus Conservation Group carried out the conservation work on these figures using the lime techniques they had learned under Professor Baker on the west front of Wells Cathedral
