Abstract:

The period 9 March – 15 May 1987 saw the first part of a two-phase programme to be undertaken in 1987-8. Work in the first phase concentrated on two projects: (1) conservation of the important 14th-century painting on a tomb in the north-east transept, often mistakenly called the tomb of St William of Perth; this painting was flaking badly, and in more urgent need of treatment than any other area of painting in the cathedral; (2) further work on the paintings in the crypt, especially those in the south-eastern bay which were in particularly critical condition, but also on some recently discovered early decorative painting on a doorway.
