THE PHYSICS FOR ARCHEOLOGY AND CULTURAL HERITAGE
The restoration, diagnostics, or study of a good or a site archaeological are strongly interdisciplinary actions, which they combine skills of humanistic tradition, with scientific analysis.
The National Institute of Nuclear Physics has promoted the birth of CHNet (Cultural Heritage Network), a network of laboratories of excellence dedicated to applications of interest for archeology and cultural heritage.
The workshop is an opportunity to present some examples of electromagnetic radiation and charged particles used as a means to investigate the hidden nature of archaeological finds and works of art.
