Material analysis of manuscripts: methodological introduction

  • Natural sciences play auxiliary role in the studies of manuscripts. The success of their contribution depends strongly on the formulation of the question and the choice of the methods to obtain the requested answer. Therefore, one should try to go beyond the understanding of the basic principles of the scientific analysis. We will start with a glance at the basic principles of the techniques used in the material science for determination of the elemental composition (X-ray emission) and molecular composition (FTIR & Raman). We will move then to the bench and mobile equipment commonly used in the field of cultural heritage. At the end we will choose a question to be answered and design an ideal experiment that will be modified according to the limitations dictated by on-site conditions. In the ateliers in the afternoon we will a) compare two XRF devices that differ in their spatial resolution; b) use a high resolution microscope (Keyence) to obtain a close look at writingNatural sciences play auxiliary role in the studies of manuscripts.
