The Heritage Laboratory of the Swedish National Heritage Board is a central facility for the development and application of heritage science, including conservation science, archaeometry and art historical research.
As a national laboratory resource we foster implementation of best practice and collaboration on a national and international level. We use experimental and analytical techniques to examine, document and identify materials and to study their ageing and working properties. Our investigations may extend from minute fragments of objects or single materials to entire collections, buildings, sites and landscapes.
We accept articles and data deposits from members of the Heritage Laboratory and our guest colleages and collaborators .
