Towards a Material Science Approach for Cultural Heritage: Requirements and Problems in the Eritrean Context

This paper explores the notion of a material science approach to the characterization and conservation of cultural heritage in an attempt to emphasize the thrust of scientific examinations in shedding light on Eritrea ́s past. In as much as providing considerations of practical issues in conservation and characterization of archaeological materials, the author seeks to explore venues of a wider application to address problems and requirements of the approach in the Eritrean context. Consequently, an evaluation of the past practice of cultural heritage in light of such an approach is furnished by outlining existing limitations and problems. Concomitant to a realistic development, the author hopes to contribute to stimulate interdisciplinary networks and analytical collaborations, both in local and international arenas for a better characterization and conservation of cultural heritages in Eritrea.
