The focal point of this course is presenting different methods of

techniques as well as modern and specific approaches. The different
ways of removing samples and of nondestructive testing are described

significance for the conservator. Moreover, one module deals with
the principles and fundamentals of a discipline, thus enabling a

contents of the course.
