Armed with our experience on the analysis of terracotta objects, Re.S.Artes will present during the Cultures Fair a conference titled : "The View of Science on the terracotta objects of Africa, Asia and South America: antiquity test and imaging".
Re.S.Artes went to the TEFAF 2017 in Maastricht.
Re.S.Artes was present in the BRAFA 2017 in Brussels from the 21st to the 29th of January 2017
Re.S.Artes presented at the BRAFA 2016, a conference on the contributions of carbon 14 to the field of the art, "from fake objects to false assumptions".
Following questions posed by the confrontation between carbon 14 and problematic objects, some erroneous ideas began to circulate, and a number of false underlying assumptions came to light. Emmanuel Vartanian and Céline Roque will confront these with scientific fact and unveil some new advances that enable them to be overcome...
Re.S.Artes is JEI (Jeune Entreprise Innovante - Young Innovative Company) since 2014, statut which validate its research activity on the analysis of antique materials, and the development of new approaches to answer to the every days evolution of problematics linked to study of objects of art.
Re.S.Artes participated to the GMPCA 2015, presenting the results of two chronological studies: C14 dating of Megalithic Necropole of Champ Chalon, France and TL-OSL dating of Pleistocene sequence at Plaine de Montaigu, France.
Re.S.Artes develops the scientific analysis of rock cristals, by participating in the creation of a more spacious analytical chamber, in order to study bigger objects. Discover how the measurement of the hydration of the object's surface using ERDA allows to establish the antiquity of the work of this material.
Re.S.Artes is member of two important french network of specialists in analysis of ancient objects: REFRAIN (REseau Francophone du Radiocarbone : Analyses et InterprétatioN) for radiocarbon (C14), and CAI-RN (Compétences Archéométriques Interdisciplinaires - Réseau National) for all kind of approaches on archaeological objects.Find the news on the blog : http://refrain14c.wordpress.com/

Re.S.Artes uses an innovating approach to study small objects made with obsidian. This time again we analyse the hydration of this natural glass in order to know if the carving phase is ancient or not. Different from ERDA, this analysis is also less expensive.
Re.S.Artes has access to the biggest database for limestone analysis. So, we are able to compare the chemical components of a limestone sculpture with those of more than 50 french quarries. This comparison allows to validate or not the hypothesis of a provenance of the stone.
Re.S.Artes innovates for the scientific expertise of wood sculptures. We develop a new methodological approach which, completing the datation of the material, allows to establish the antiquity of the carving.
An article describing the first results of these researches was submitted to an international scientific journal.

Re.S.Artes is the preferred partner of Charente-Maritime's Archaeological department services for chronological studies using carbon 14 dating on any type of organic materials.
Re.S.Artes publishes its chronological studies in Archaeology, in parternship with the Archaeologists in charge of the researches. Our two last publications are now available.
