Change Over Time is a new, semiannual journal focused on publishing original, peer-reviewed research papers and review articles on the history, theory, and praxis of conservation and the built environment. Each issue is dedicated to a particular theme as a method to promote critical discourse on contemporary conservation issues from multiple perspectives both within the field and across disciplines. Themes will be examined at all scales-from the global and regional to the microscopic and material. Forthcoming issues will address topics such as repair, documentation in the digital age, professionalism, vandalism, interpretation and display, the public good, and the Venice Charter at 50. To subscribe, please contact the publisher at email@example.com.

Dr. Matero's use of the "soft-capping" technique at Far View House and his work with the endangered plasters at Spruce Tree House, Mesa Verde's third-largest cliff dwelling, are discussed.
