A Special Issue of the international journal Sustainability https://www.mdpi.com/journal/sustainability) under the section Sustainability of Culture & Heritage (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/sustainability/sections/culture_and_heritage) is planned to be entitled Natural Sciences in Archaeology and Cultural Heritage. The bridge between science/technology and the humanities (archaeology, anthropology, history of art, and cultural heritage) has formed a well-established interdisciplinary subject with several sub-disciplines; it is growing exponentially, spurred by the fast development of technology in other fields (space exploration, medical, military, and industrial applications). On the other hand, art and culture strive to survive from either neglect, lack of funding, or the dangers of events such as natural disasters and war. This volume will strengthen and exert the documentation of the sustainability of the issue, which arises from the outcome of resulting research and the application of such a duality link. The sustainable dimension emerges from the society, education, and economics through the impact of cultural growth, all of which, after all, produces a balanced society, in which prosperity, harmony, and development are merged to a sustainable local/regional/national/social level. A wide range of subjects linking applied natural sciences with archaeology and cultural heritage of innovative research and applications is anticipated to form this volume. Subjects include but are not limited to the keywords below. The deadline for submission of articles is 31st December 2018, and the envisaged publication, following peer review, is late spring 2019.
