The course aims to provide basic knowledge for understanding the most important physical techniques used in Archaeometry applied to significant case studies taken from the current literature.
Therefore it aims to:
- give the basic physics knowledge to understand the principal physical
techniques used for the investigation on the cultural heritage artifacts, applied to many case studies;
- transfer knowledge and understanding of the physical techniques of archaeometry
enabling the application of new ideas in a interdisciplinary research context and
solve complex problems, with a capacity for reflection on the implications of the findings and decisions;
- provide the tools and methodologies to acquire communication skills, even toward non-specialists
in Archaeometry and to deal with autonomy in a in-depth study of the techniques.
