Summary:

Cultural Heritage Science provides a renewed interdisciplinary framework for humanities, materials, environmental and computer sciences. This workshop gathers French and international teams who implement such interdisciplinarity projects. Methodological questions will be addressed through a dialogue between disciplines, and focusing on various case studies covering a vast period from Prehistory to the beginning of modern times.

Open to all communities interested in Cultural Heritage Science and in the practice of interdisciplinarity in research (academic staff, heritage stakeholders, students, and the general public), this workshop questions the current issues linked to the development of Heritage Science.

Geomorphologist : Jean-Jacques Delannoy works on both geomorphological and archaeological data to better understand the morphology and the landscape of Rock Art site. His research over the last 10 years has primarily involved the development of this crossing of geomorphology integrated into archaeological issues. He initiated the concept of anthropo-geomorphology based on his work at Chauvet Cave and the aboriginal sites of Terre d'Arhnem and Kimberley. Since 2018, he presides over the International Scientific Council of Lascaux Cave (Ministry of Culture and Communication -France) and is also a member of the Chauvet cave scientific team since 1998. It belongs to the center of excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage which aims to develop interdisciplinary research on Australian archaeological sites.

Philippe MartinezPhilippe Martinez
Research engineer & Egyptologist - CNRS, Laboratory of Molecular and Structural Archaeology (LAMS), Sorbonne Université, Paris

Research Engineer working at the Laboratory of Molecular and Structural Archaeology (Sorbonne University), Philippe Martinez is a Ph.D. in Egyptology specialising in the epigraphic documentation of the texts and decoration of religious monuments. In this context, he has developed for 20 years technics and processes of digital archaeological documentation. He specialised in the use of 3D reconstruction for heritage, recently adding digital photogrammetry to his toolbox. He is also interested in heritage site management and scientific mediation. He has published books and articles for specialised as well as wider audience magazines and has participated in the creation of documentaries, CD-Roms and websites on related topics.

From a background in statistics, she specialized in the management, processing and representation of spatio-temporal data in the field of human and urban geography. Today, her approach is based on different methods: data modeling, statistical modeling and exploration, computer simulation, geovisualization

Marie RadepontMarie Radepont
Researcher Engineer, material physico-chemist - Centre de Recherche sur la Conservation

Marie Radepont is a physico-chemist of training materials and specializes in the study of ancient materials in an artistic or archaeological context. Marie Radepont entered the field of research on heritage materials by completing a Master 2 internship on the study of mummy hair at the Centre de Recherche et de Restauration des Musées de France (C2RMF), then a doctorate on the degradation of a red pigment called cinnabar or vermilion between the University of Antwerp (Belgium) and the University Pierre et Marie Curie (France). She then carried out post-doctoral studies on the study of the origin and alteration of polychrome gilded leathers at the Conservation Research Centre (CRC), then worked on assisting in the authentication of easel paintings by using hyperspectral imaging at the Laboratory of Molecular and Structural Archaeology (LAMS). Since January 1, 2019 Marie has been a research engineer at CRC working on an X-ray fluorescence spectrometer. His specialization in the use of state-of-the-art equipment dedicated to chemical analysis and in particular to imaging, allows him to identify the pigments and materials used by artists from antiquity to the modern era.
Philippe WalterPhilippe Walter
Head of Laboratory of Molecular and Structural Archaeology - Laboratory of Molecular and Structural Archaeology (LAMS), Sorbonne Université, Paris

Philippe Walter develops new instruments and analytical techniques adapted to the in situ and non-invasive study of ancient materials. His main research interests are focused on the use of analytical chemistry to understand the development of chemistry to create health and beauty products during Antiquity as well as pigments, binders and medium useful for the Old Masters.
He is the holder of an MSc degree in physics from the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon and a PhD degree in Geochemistry from Paul Sabatier University, Toulouse, France. Working at CNRS since 1995, he was the recipient of the silver medal of CNRS in 2008, and the Grand Prix Le Bel of the French Society of Chemistry in 2017.
