Explains the commonly used scientific techniques for object analysis
Reveals how and why object typologies work
Demonstrates that cultural and economic factors as well as the properties of materials influence what objects are made of

o Why did artists sign their pictures?
o Why do people X-ray ancient artifacts?
o Can you determine the source of metal objects from their trace elements?
