Following on from the very successful inaugural event of 2011, the IOP Materials and Characterisation group are pleased to announce another one day Cultural Heritage Science event. The objective is to introduce and discuss both cutting edge and traditional science behind the preservation of our heritage, and the ethical framework which shapes its experiments. For this event we have a select number of invited speakers who are experts in their respective field (the list of invited speakers can be found here). The topics under discussion will embrace a diverse range such as ethics in heritage science, heritage materials, museum artefacts and their conservation, and different scientific techniques and their applicability.
The event offers a fantastic occasion for new and experienced colleagues along with those with a curious interest to share best practice and build relationships for future collaborative research. The meeting will take place in the newly opened Mary Rose Museum at Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard and will conclude with a guided tour of the new museum and excellent conservation facilities. Places are limited due to the venue size and so early registration is advised.
