EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology (SEAHA)

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology (SEAHA) is an 8-year initiative (2014-2022) to establish an infrastructure to meet challenges set by the heritage sector, industry and government.

Heritage presents complex cross-disciplinary scientific and engineering research questions, ideal for talented graduate students to address. Working with heritage and industry partners, SEAHA students create, innovate or use sensors, instrumentation, imaging, digital and creative technologies to improve our understanding of heritage, to develop science and engineering capabilities and to benefit the economy.

SEAHA ‘Student Engagers’ at UCL Museums

Four SEAHA students are joining the team of ‘Student Engagers’ at UCL Museums. Student Engagers are postgraduate research students at UCL who aim to broaden public engagement with research by sharing their knowledge and making connections between their own research and the collections at UCL. Alexandra Bridarolli, Mark Kearney, Anna Pokorska and Cerys Jones will […]

Hayley Simon publishes research on Sychrotron techniques in Angewandte Chemie

SEAHA student Hayley Simon alongside her supervisors and researchers from SEAHA partner Diamond Light Source have published research on synchrotron techniques to study iron cannonballs from the Mary Rose in Angewandte Chemie. The work combines multiple X-ray based methods to probe the inner workings of iron artefacts following 35 years of conservation treatments. The study focuses […]

Student Laura Arcidiacono co-authors paper in Angewandte Chemie

SEAHA student Laura Arcidiacono has co-authored a paper ‘Egyptian grave-goods of Kha and Merit studied by neutron and gamma techniques‘ in journal Angewandte Chemie. The intact burial assemblage of Kha and Merit was discovered in 1906 in Egypt when the Italian Archaeological Mission (MAI) located the underground tomb; its entrance was hidden by a landslide […]
