The organization and methodological approach of APAC Labs are based on the premise that the effective use of science and technology enables and enhances fundamental research questions in art history, archaeology, and more broadly, cultural heritage. Thus, APAC Labs offer a research pipeline that integrates art history and archaeology with heritage sciences and digital technologies to support the productive dialogue between previously separated disciplines and fields of expertise.
APAC Labs operate state-of-the-art instrumentation in digital microscopy, spectroscopy point-analysis, technical and multi-spectral imaging and high-accuracy 3D documentation. A distinct application area, following the development of the laboratorie’s integrated pipeline, is its implementation on various archaeological objects, with the primary scope to characterize their chain of operation, i.e. modes of production, manipulation of raw materials and use. Moreover, APAC Labs data is integrated in AriadnePlus,
the European Research infrastructure
on Archaeological Data, which engages more than thirty heritage institutions across Europe, the Americas and Asia.
