Elementary Chemistry - High scool level.
The course aims to: introduce the student to the scientific methods that are used for the study of artistic or archaeological artefacts; provide archaeological students with the basics for understanding the existence of digging materials and their functional alterations.
Provide multidisciplinary skills that are the basis of modern archeology.
The application of chemical-physical techniques can provide important information for historical, archaeological study. This is essential for the reconstruction of landscapes as well as for the understanding of pictorial techniques or the composition of ceramic or metallurgical artefacts.
Basis of inorganic and organic chemistry.
Basis of the main spectroscopic techniques and instrumental analysis.
Chemical applications to the investigation of archaeological sites and artifacts.
Chemical application to the investigation of artworks.
