Raman Spectroscopy in Archaeology and Art History highlights the important contributions Raman spectroscopy makes as a non-destructive method for characterising the chemical composition and structure and in determining the provenance and authenticity of objects of archaeological and historical importance. It brings together studies from diverse areas and represents the first dedicated work on the use of this technique in this increasingly important field. Coverage includes: An Introduction to Raman Spectroscopy, including practical aspects of Raman spectroscopy and complementary techniques; Dyes and Pigments; Artefacts; Biological Materials and Degradation; Jewellery and Precious Stones. The book contains a broad selection of real-world examples in the form of case studies to provide the reader with a true appreciation of the procedures that need to be invoked to derive spectroscopic information from some of the most challenging specimens and systems. Colour illustrations of objects of investigation and a database of 72 Raman spectra of relevant minerals are included. With its extensive examples, Raman Spectroscopy in Archaeology and Art History will be of particular interest to specialists in the field, including researchers and scientific/conservation staff in museums. Academics will find it an invaluable reference to the use of Raman spectroscopy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It is very suitable not only for scientists but also for those conservators involved with Art, Art History, Archaeology and the conservation of heritage......an excellent compendium of the state-of-the-art of Raman spectroscopy and, especially, the most recent advances and findings applied to Art History and Archaeology. * Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry (2006), 385: 1037-1038 (Maria-Teresa Domenech-Carbo) *
An invaluable and timely contribution to science-based archaeology and art history. * Antiquity, 80 (2006): 733-750 (Stephen Buckley) *
Without doubt essential reading for all those involved in archaeology in general and the conservation and proof of authenticity of works of art in particular. * Chromatographia, January 2006, Vol. 63, No.1/2, 103-105 (E.R. Adlard) *
