    The conservation lab is buzzing as we clean and conserve the many artifacts just recieved. In addition to numerous examples of fine 16th century pewter to add to our extensive collection, we also got some surprises, like the gold-gilded horse stirrup and perfect pewter salt pictured below.

GME has built a solid foundation, and has developed a proven model to solve this problem, and open up this mid-water depth…
