International audience; The synchrotron characterisation of archaeological and heritage materials has undergone a steep devel- opment in the past years, among a range of other advanced characterisation techniques. For synchrotron techniques alone, close to a hundred articles were published in 2011 on such materials, prompting new developments at large scale facilities. However, few publications have discussed the specific character- istics of heritage materials in their advanced spectroscopic and imaging study. Here, we suggest that a greater consideration be put on the specificities of ancient materials and their theoretical implica- tions on the analytical pro...
