REVEALING THE BURIED PAST – THE MODERN WAY
Dr Sebastiano D’Amico illustrates ground breaking technology to discover the buried past
The scientific investigation of heritage sites has grown significantly in the past years and the use of latest technologies which can eliminate physical intervention has expanded rapidly. Dr. Sebastiano D’Amico Ph.D has been working at the University of Malta within the Department of Physics and Geosciences since 2010. His talk, organized by Din l-Art Helwa, will present his findings at several test sites in Malta within several churches and archeological areas and also abroad, namely the archaeological sites of Gela, Scifi and Lecce. He will focus on ground-breaking use of multidisciplinary scientific methods such as radar technology for the benefit of archaeologists, conservators and policy makers aiding them to discover, protect and promote cultural heritage sites.
