VIEW @ KU Leuven: Core Facility for Heritage Science and Digitisation Technologies in context of new approaches for the study of heritage materials

Watteeuw, Lieve; Vandermeulen, Bruno; De Pril, Ward; Hameeuw, Hendrik

Heritage artefacts and collections are crossroads where historical context, materiality, content and technology join. In the field of heritage science, scholars deploy methodologies from the humanities and applied sciences to increase the understanding of heritage artefacts and collections through the use of advanced technology and infrastructure. Within VIEW, KU Leuven Core Facility for Heritage Science and Digitisation Technologies, several labs have joined their expertise and infrastructure. VIEW deploys digitisation technologies and techniques such as advanced imaging, high-end digitisation and data extraction to create rich datasets, provide new insights and facilitate cutting edge research of documentary heritage, heritage collections and heritage materials in a nondestructive way. The focused use of such infrastructure and technology represents an important accelerator in conservation science projects for documents on papyrus, parchment and paper.
