The Master’s Programme in Conservation of Cultural Heritage Objects provides an opportunity to specialise within the field of conservation and to develop in-depth skills in conservation techniques and instruments. The specialisation for the academic year 2024/2025 is archaeological materials. The programme incorporates critical thinking in conservation and prepares you for professional work in your specialisation area, as well as lays the foundation for future academic studies.

The programme offers a new specialisation at each start of the programme. In the academic year 2024/2025, we offer archaeological materials as a specialisation.

Archaeological materials are a group of cultural heritage objects that were discovered from archaeological excavations from terrestrial and seawater environments. Due to long-term burial in soil or water and changes in the environment during excavation, some special considerations should be applied before, during and after excavation. The aim of this specialisation is to teach you all aspects of field conservation activities, the methods of study and analysis of archaeological materials, as well as post-excavation conservation operations in the lab.
