Lecture on preservation science

From: Jeanette Adams <jead<-a>
Date: Monday, June 6, 2005
The Preservation Directorate of the Library of Congress would like
to invite you to the next lecture in its series on Topics in
Preservation Science.

Tuesday, July 12, Jacqueline S. Olin (Former Assistant Director for
Archaeometric Research, Smithsonian Center for Materials Research
and Education) will present "An Iron Gall Ink Database: Its
Potential Usefulness".

This talk will describe the controversy that has surrounded the
Vinland Map regarding the presence of anatase in the iron gall ink
and the need for a robust study of medieval inks, which will provide
a basis for evaluating all the information from the analysis of the
ink in this and other objects of proposed medieval origin.

The lecture will be held from 10:30am-noon in Dining Room A, Madison
Building 6th floor, Library of Congress (101 Independence Avenue SE,
Washington, D.C. 20540).

The Topics in Preservation Science lectures are free and open to the
public. For more information about this series, which is continually
expanded and updated, see
