A two-day interdisciplinary workshop organised by the ISAAC group in the framework of the European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science (E-RIHS). The event aimed to bring together those engaged in the study of heritage from different backgrounds (historians, curators, archaeologists, conservators and heritage scientists) to illustrate how science can address a wide range of research questions related to heritage objects and to foster interdisciplinary collaboration between the participants.
A dissemination event to discover how the E-RIHS plays a connecting role in the global community of heritage science organised by the ISAAC group.
A workshop on the application of the latest imaging and analytical science to the conservation, art history and archaeological enquires related to the Silk Road heritage is funded by Research Councils UK to foster links with China on science and heritage projects. An interdisciplinary approach to the study of wall paintings in temples, caves and tombs through the application of latest imaging science for recording, monitoring and material analysis is a promising direction that needs investment of time to build up effective collaborations. The workshop has an interdisciplinary focus involving practitioners from a wide range of disciplines from science and conservation to archaeology and history.
