"Perhaps no branch of architecture calls for more highly specialised qualifications in all concerned than does that which has to do with the treatment of ancient buildings. The questions which have to be dealt with are of a most intricate nature, always involving the consideration of the twin needs of structural stability and of conservation, and sometimes also the making of alterations. In the course of work on an ancient building points difficult to decide and needing instant decision constantly arise. What needs renewal? How much may be retained? What technical method should be employed?"

~A.R. Powys. Repair of Ancient Buildings, London 1929, reprinted 1981
