One Off Journal Issues: The Contribution of Mineralogy to Cultural Heritage

The Contribution of Mineralogy to Cultural Heritage
(G. Artioli and R. Oberti, editors)
EMU Notes in Mineralogy  Volume 20 (2019)
ISBN: 978-0903056-61-8
The chapters contributed to the volume recognize the important and diverse contributions of mineralogy to the valorization, characterization, interpretation and conservation of cultural heritage. The book focuses on examples of materials and methodological issues rather than technical/analytical details. We have attempted to deal with the cultural heritage materials in chronological order of their technological developments, to relate them to past human activities, and to highlight unresolved problems in need of investigation.
