SEAHA students and alumni research multifarious aspects of heritage science. Broadly, we specialise in material, environmental, and digital heritage science aligned to the strengths of our university partners.
Find out about our research on conservation of historical buildings, including use of BIM for heritage, seismic protection, weathering, degradation of materials used on heritage properties such as lime mortar.
Read publications and find out about student projects that use different imaging techniques, such as NIR, hyperspectral and multispectral, to explore heritage objects both in situ and in museum collections.
Discover our research that uses heritage science techniques to include visitors in heritage conservation such as crowdsourcing data, or that aims to improve experiences of visitors in museums through mechanisms such as lighting or tactile models for the visually impaired.
Heritage Science Collection
A collection in the journal Heritage Science of all works published by SEAHA students and supervisors. Papers are collected by a guest editor for the journal.
Each month a SEAHA student takes over our twitter account to tweet about their research. You can see heritage science experiments as they happen such as using sensors to test acid levels in display cases, photos from field work in places ranging from National Trust properties to Oman, and other issues that interest our students.
