New technologies for conservation of artifacts damaged in Iraq

From: Kelly Hearn <kwhearn>
Date: Monday, April 21, 2003
I am writing a story for United Press International looking at what
new technologies--if any--could be used to restore damaged artifacts
in Iraq. Are there any nanotechnology applications being used, for
example? I heard recently that much of the work is still done the
old fashioned way--with glue.  Anyway, I am desperate to find some
clues here. Again, what kinds of technologies are being used to
restore damaged artifacts? Any pointers would be greatly
appreciated,
