Conservation and restoration issues of a hand-made map titled: Plan of allotments of land, given in accordance with the voluntary agreement of the village of Dołhobrody in exchange for forest and grazing easements from the entire Sławatycze estate of the Duchess Maria Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst located in the Siedlce Governorate, Ujazd Bielski resort of Sławatycze municipality, made by M. Kowalski, a surveyor, in November and December 1884, private property

Carrying out conservation works on the nineteenth-century map of the peasant land plan in the village of Dołhobrody was a big challenge for me. The technique and technology of the artefact, especially the historical deposits, required an individual approach and the use of modern conservation methods.During the work it was necessary to consult specialists from various fields of science and conduct research, thanks to which the best and safest conservation procedure for this artefact was established. The experience gained during the implementation of my degree piece allowed me to take a wider look at the issues of conservation of artefacts on paper substrate and I will definitely use it in the implementation of future projects.
