Knut Einar Larsen and Nils Marstein provide a comprehensive preservation strategy that may be applied in practice, taking into account different cultures and traditions. It is a timely response to the needs of the international community for guidelines for the conservation of historic timber structures, and for others wishing to develop their knowledge of the preservation of our wooden cultural heritage. The book will also help those interested in modern building practices that are compatible with sustainable development.

A new, universally applicable approach to preservation based on the 'Principles for the Preservation of Historic Timber Structures', adopted by the International Wood Committee of ICOMOS (The International Council on Monuments and Sites).

An ecological and environmentally responsible guide to preservation, founded on respect for traditional crafts and building techniques.
