The archaeometry international workshop was held at the Laboratorio de Analisis e Investigaciones Arqueometricas (Laboratory for Analysis and Archaeometric Research) in Chile, 14-16 April 2014. The conference presented research on the physical-chemical study and analysis of archaeological and heritage materials using the least invasive techniques and destructive potential, so as to contribute to the preservation and conservation of the studied objects. The conference also aimed to increase the development of interdisciplinary research in archaeology where chemistry, physics, geology, biology and conservation converge.
All presenters were invited to contribute full papers based on the work being presented for publication in this themed series.
