When science and material cultural heritage collaborate, the study may be called archaeometry, technical art history, conservation science, or taphonomy. The research may be about the artist’s technique, tools, or component materials; or it may focus on specific techniques such as dating objects, non-destructive analysis; or it may be about the decomposition of materials during the period from deposition to discovery, or it may be focus on the predicting the future preservation risk to objects of art, archaeology, architecture. When conservators work with source communities, it may be called a consultation, collaboration, or contribution. The role of conservators and conservation scientists is very important. This presentation will share examples that illustrate their value when working with source communities under different circumstances.
