Workshop on ‘What can heritage science do for you?’

In partnership with the University of Cambridge Museums (UCM), we are running a one-day workshop at the British Library on Tuesday 12 March 2019 to explore the benefits of heritage science research in the context of collections-based research and outreach activities.

Participants will learn about a range of analytical methods, which can be used to learn more about the materials composition, history, original context and current conservation and storage needs of archaeological, archival and museum objects.

During the workshop, real case studies of heritage science research applied to a range of objects will be presented and discussed.

Participants will be asked to contribute their experience of, or aspirations for, collaboration with heritage science researchers. The workshop is suitable for conservators, curators, early career scientists, collections managers, archivists and librarians working in museums, archives, libraries and historic houses.

There are a limited number of free places available to employees or members of NHSF member organisations.
