    Lead strips called ‘cames' or ‘calmes' hold the pieces of glass together and, therefore, play a major structural role in the window. There is no general rule for how long lead cames last and medieval :D leading :D can often still be found in windows today. Like the glass, the :D leading :D can provide the conservator with significant information about the date of the window and techniques used. If the original :D leading :D has failed and needs to be replaced it should be carefully recorded and preserved. As the leading also contributes to the visual/aesthetic appearance of a window it is important to match the original width and profile when replacing the historical lead cames.
