Under the microscope. These photographs are from a study in the Journal of the American Institute for Conservation. The study is an investigation, analysis, and authenication of historic wallpaper fragments...

We loved these sectional looks at bits of wall finishes. They point out layers of original plaster, dirt, paint, wallpaper, and glue. And they reminded us of the brightly colored original plaster walls we found underneath drywall when we renovated our c. 1880 apartment. Has anyone else ever dug up any wall archaeology in their homes?
