Ancient and Medieval Monuments from Romania and Spain as a Testimony of Transcontinental Links—Cultural and Scientific Aspects
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
The synergic approach to preserving and restoring chalk stone, artefacts, mosaics, and fresco surfaces, which belong to the cultural heritage, with archeomaterials brings novelty through transdisciplinarity. Applied research is needed to save some of the most important pieces of art and archeology belonging to the national cultural heritage and requiring high-level professional interventions, aligned with international standards. Heritage objects of great value are: painted frescos from the Hypogeum tomb in Constanta, the Roman mosaic of Constanta, metopes carved in stone in the form of bass reeds from the Museum of Adamclisi, the limestone components from the cave churches of Basarabi, painted frescos located in Loggia Mathia in the Corvin Castle, archeological pieces from Hunedoara and romans murals from Spain. These ancient and medieval monuments from Romania expose connections to Asia, Europe and the American continents. Stone and fresco surfaces are continuously exposed to physical, chemical and biological degradation. Some petrographic and bio-physico-chemical analyses of wall samples are presented in this paper, putting into evidence the status of degradation and the possible solution for its conservation. Innovative restoration solutions will be sought by material compatibility with the original.
