Scope note
The process of removing a mosaic or pavement from its original location to a new support and often to a new location. The process involves temporary facings, lifting or removal of the mortars, stabilization of the tessera or panels, and other issues; for various reasons, lifting is used rather than in situ stabilization treatments.
