STEM to STEAM: The Science of Art Part 2

Ancient: How Old Is It?

Determining the date of an object is a complex process. Any investigation must combine art historical knowledge about style and function and scientific knowledge about materials and techniques of manufacture. In some cases, as with ceramics and wood, scientific techniques can be used to determine the date of manufacture. More often, such findings are not as straightforward.

In this session we will use case studies from both the ancient Mediterranean world and the New World to illustrate how science and technology can be used to answer questions concerning the dating and authenticity of an artwork.
