  Information - ERE7 Natural stone resources for historical monuments

Event Information
Monuments built of natural stone make important part of cultural heritage. Unfortunately, our current knowledge of historical stone resources is incomplete. Authentic types of natural stone (or stone showing similar properties) must be often supplied during reconstruction of historical monuments.

This special session will focus on the following topics:
Summary of recent knowledge on historical stone resources
Lithotheques and electronic databases of historical stone resources
Techniques used for the determination of natural stone provenance
Methods applicable for exploration of historical quarries
Criteria for re-opening of historical quarries and possible application of authentic stone resources during reconstruction of historical monuments
Assessment of non-authentic stone types for replacement on historical monuments

Preliminary List of Solicited Speakers
