On the one hand, the articles published deal with the scientific techniques like aerial photography and Ground magnetics in digital image processing, etc. It also touches the conservation of excavated remains along with preservation objects of fragile material like paper wood, etc. Some of the articles delved deep in analysing the cause and effect of inherent deterioration and decay of varied monuments and pollutions thereof.
