The introductory chapter is a personal review of the basic concepts of archaeometry and conservation science, as seen by the different players in the field: artists, archaeologists, curators, and scientists. Though partial and undoubtedly biased, it attempts to show the multifaceted aspects of the use of scientific methods to the materials of cultural heritage, including some of the current misconceptions and practical problems.
