Since the completion of the Caesarea Conservation Project (1992–2002) a team of conservators has been working at the site, charged with the continued conservation maintenance of the antiquities there. This is the first site in the country for which a multiyear conservation maintenance file was prepared. The maintenance cycle is fourteen months; however, it changes occasionally depending on the state of preservation of the elements at the site.
The main objectives of multiyear maintenance are: to monitor the weathering processes at the site, treat architectural and artistic elements that are currently subjected to weathering and destructive processes, as well as provide a response to the deterioration of previous interventions. Accordingly, the maintenance team monitors the materials from the standpoint of their durability and quality, checks the stability of the buildings, identifies safety problems arising at the site and implements conservation work and minimal restoration.
The Caesarea conservation team, which is responsible for maintaining the site, numbers nineteen employees who were trained in the 1990’s, at the time of the Caesarea Excavation and Conservation Project. The staff is currently employed not only at Caesarea but at other sites also, as the need arises.
