The Fall Forum features several scholars and scientists presenting a cross-discipline conversation, about the discovery and conservation of the Archimedes Palimpsest. In session one, Conservation Scientist Glenn Gates will discuss current research in the field of cultural heritage that is conducted at the Walters Art Museum in collaboration with other institutions.

A brief history of the development of this field over the past two decades will be reviewed, with particular attention to the recently established program of federal funding entitled Chemistry and Materials Research in Cultural Heritage Science at the National Science Foundation.

Gates will also describe analyses conducted on the Archimedes Palimpsest at the Walters Art Museum and the significance of the results. Finally, Gates will describe specific examples of current cultural heritage research at the Walters Art Museum, how research questions are formulated, and how scientific research is conducted at the Walters Art Museum.
