Over the next week, we will be publishing reflections from attendees of our ‘What can heritage science do for you?’ workshop that we held in partnership with the University of Cambridge Museums (UCM) back in March.
The one-day workshop took place at the British Library to explore the benefits of heritage science research in the context of collections-based research and outreach activities.
Participants learnt about a range of analytical methods, which methods 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 were presented and discussed.
Participants were asked to contribute their experience of, or aspirations for, collaboration with heritage science researchers. The workshop was targeted at conservators, curators, early career scientists, collections managers, archivists and librarians working in museums, archives, libraries and historic houses.
A limited number of free places were available to employees or members of NHSF member organisations.
