About this book

This volume provides a total of 24 peer reviewed papers as an overview of the work performed within COST Action G8 "Non-destructive testing and analysis of museum objects" which ran from 2001 to 2006. This book is intended for all those interested in the benefit of non-destructive techniques, especially conservators, restorers, and art historians who will find examples of the applications of various analytical methods to art objects, ranging from metal artefacts through paintings and drawings to ceramics and stone.

The content will also be of interest to scientists working in research institutions who, whilst not having themselves a background in art or archaeology, often come face-to-face with issues related to cultural heritage which need specific scientific input to resolve particular problems. It is, over all, aimed at helping to bridge the gaps between the numerous players in this emerging multi-disciplinary field. COST Action G8, entitled "Non-destructive analysis and testing of museum objects" represents a European network fostering interdisciplinary cooperation to improve the preservation and conservation of our cultural heritage by increasing the information on museum objects through non-destructive analysis and testing. Action G8 and this volume have been supported by COST, an intergovernmental European framework that allows the coordination of nationally funded research at a pan-European level.
