Our team specialises in interdisciplinary research at the interface between science and heritage, from instrument development to data science for the interpretation of results for heritage applications.

The              that we have been involved in are related to the analysis of a range of cultural heritage objects, from manuscripts and various types of paintings to vitreous objects and rock art.


Our                        extend from all the national museums and heritage organisations as well as some regional museums in the UK to heritage organisations around the world from Europe to the USA, China and New Zealand.
