Summary/Abstract: The article integrates the research results of the conservation-restoration interventions from the wooden church in Plopiș township, Maramureș county. The research was part of the conservationrestoration project and focused on identifying the optimal methodological approach in order to uncover the original mural decoration present underneath the superposed historical whitewash layers and modern wall finishing materials. A series of stratigraphic tests were carried out aiming to identify the original layer of the interior mural decoration. The results of the tests highlighted the presence of fragments from the original painted mural decoration, partly preserved under the layers of whitewash. The test results contributed to the development of an archaeological approach of the methodological removal of the whitewash layers.
