By David Bradley, Dudley Cecil Creagh (eds.)

The first of its sort, this sequence is dedicated to using actual rules within the learn and medical conservation of gadgets with cultural background importance. It starts off with a evaluation of the fashionable museum, which discusses new innovations hired within the conservation of museum artifacts corresponding to X-ray tomography and different thoughts used to check Egyptian mummies, bones and mineralization of bones within the archaeological context, and the degradation of parchment. All of those issues and methods are crucial for the upkeep of our historical past. This comprises discovering how one can safeguard parchment files and letters, which a lot of our written historical past is documented on, in order that it may be used and understood for generations to come.
