Different as they are, an ancient book or a painting, a statue or a historical building, skeletal or metallic remains – we need to be able to understand how to preserve them for future generations.
This book contains a collection of research papers associated with the pan-European network COST Action D42. The action was launched in 2006 and ran for 4 years. Twenty-seven countries were involved. The main objective was to explore chemical interactions between cultural artefacts and typical indoor environmental conditions through field studies and laboratory experiments and to translate the results into preventive conservation practices.
The book is published in memory of John Havermans, chair of COST Action D42.
