Heritage Science Explained, part 3

Beschrijving

Heritage science plays an increasingly important role in the fields of both active (treatments) and passive (preventive) conservation, archaeology and (technical) art history. Analytical techniques supply insights into the constituting materials and internal structure, the genesis, the material history and the degradation mechanisms of heritage objects and are key in developing mitigating strategies for a broad range of conservation issues.

Target Group:

This micro credential is relevant for people working in the heritage sector in different positions. It is especially relevant for researchers, conservators, restorers, archaeologists, art historians, guides, … who want to learn more or gain in depth insights in materials and techniques used in heritage.

Programma

Heritage Science plays an increasingly important role in the fields of both active (treatments) and passive (prevention) conservation, archaeology and (technical) art history. The associated imaging and analytical techniques supply insights into the constituting materials and internal structure, the genesis, the material history and the degradation mechanisms of heritage objects and are key in developing mitigating strategies for a broad range of conservation issues. Therefore, in this course, we discuss the most commonly used diagnostic methods in the heritage field, in particular:
• Macro X-Ray Fluorescence imaging;
• Macro X-Ray Powder Diffraction imaging;
• Computed Tomography;
• Scanning Electron Microscopy;
• Fourier Transformed Infrared spectroscopy
• Raman spectroscopy
• Mass Spectrometry techniques
• Chromatographic techniques

As such, the course can be considered as a continuation of the micro credential Analytical and Imaging Techniques for Heritage Objects, during which the most basic methods are discussed, i.e. Ultra-Violet Induced Visible Fluorescence Photography (UIVFP), X-Ray Radiography (XRR), Infrared Photography and Reflectography (IRP and IRR) and X-Ray Fluorescence spectrometry (XRF).

Opmerkingen

Three micro credentials cover the entire domain of material research from a technical point of view, in heritage science. These micro credentials, each focusing on different techniques, can be followed separately or consecutively, according to the level of skills needed or learners’ interests.

The entire learning path consists of the following micro credentials:

  • Optical microscopy for heritage materials (part 1)
  • Analytical and Imaging Techniques for Heritage Objects (part 2)
  • Advanced analytical techniques (part 3)
