Abstract

The application of physics to art history, art conservation and archaeology is currently a growing area of research. Astronomy and astrophysics have made significant contributions to imaging science which has in turn contributed to the developments of many other fields ranging from biological science to the study of art history, archaeology and art conservation. This paper will discuss how knowledge traditionally associated with astrophysics have made impact on the study of cultural heritage. Examples will be drawn from recent research carried out in my research group.
