    Long-Term Embrittlement of Ancient Copper and Silver Alloys

    Omid Oudbashi and Russell Wanhill have written a review article for the upcoming Heritage "Metals in Heritage Science" Special Issue. This article reviews the current knowledge of long-term embrittlement of ancient copper and silver alloys, obtained with the aid of metallographic and fractographic analyses. This knowledge can be useful for the restoration and conservation of embrittled artifacts.

    The article is available via open access.
