and Siliceous materials: dating with the use of the Thermoluminescence
(human or animal dental elements; cave deposits which relate to
palaeontological and anthropological remains): dating using the technique
of Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR).
certification of objects for museums and collectors using radiometric techniques
and comparative studies of composition and technology.
Marble: studying the
surface of marble to investigate the authentication of ancient marble artefacts.
The Study of Ancient Technologies
Ancient Ceramic Technology:
characterising clays, investigating the processing of raw materials and firing conditions.

Plasters - colouring agents:
Characterising and studying the techniques of decorations, frescos and icons, as well
as both marble and ceramic objects.
Metallurgy and Slags: characterisation
and reconstruction of ancient processes
Paper: characterisation and the
technology of production
