Based on the work of Working Party 21 Corrosion of Archaeological and Historical Artefacts within the European Federation of Corrosion (EFC), this important book summarizes recent research on analytical techniques, understanding corrosion processes and preventing the corrosion of cultural heritage metallic artifacts.After an introductory section on some of the key issues with corrosion, part two reviews the range of analytical techniques for measuring and analyzing corrosion processes, including time resolved spectroelectrochemistry, voltammetry and laser induced breakdown spectroscopy. Sections three and four explore different types of corrosion processes for a range of artifacts and discuss on site monitoring techniques. The conclusion summarizes a range of conservation techniques and strategies to conserve cultural heritage metallic artifacts.
