Tim Parnel's research is about one of the most interesting subject: Specifically, 'anastylosis', the reconstruction of fallen or unsafe structures - examining the arguments for/against reconstruction -honesty of approach - deceiving the public? Risking destroying archaeology to preserve architecture - emergency works and so on. The conflict of philosophies and priorities really.
