The use of analytical methods in studies concerning works of art and archaeological artifacts provides essential information on the materials they are made from, including their composition, age, and methods used in their production. This book explains how to use analytical methods to obtain such information.
"Scientists...explain how analytical methods are being used to study works of art and archaeological artifacts...they discuss basic principles, procedures, and applications." (Reference & Research Book News, November 2001)
