The SEAHA-CDT collection

This collection showcases selected research papers from early-career researchers working at the SEAHA Centre for Doctoral Training. This EPSRC-funded centre was established in 2014 by Oxford University, the University of Brighton and University College London along with numerous cultural institutions and industry partners. The research carried out in SEAHA involves all the aspects of heritage science, from environments to imaging technologies, from materials science to digital heritage.

Papers selected by the Guest Editor as examples of the high quality research being performed at the SEAHA-CDT are invited to be submitted as part of this article collection in Heritage Science.
