Whether through the X-ray tomography of million-years old fossils or the micro-analysis of fragments from impressionists’ paintings, the Cultural and Natural Heritage community is increasingly exploiting the ESRF instruments. Recent achievements and discoveries in palaeontology, archaeology and art science, based on the application of a large variety of X-ray techniques, will be highlighted. The emerging new opportunities offered by the ESRF-EBS X-ray source as well as the improved and imminent beamlines will be thoroughly discussed. Besides, two satellites sessions will be proposed: one as an introduction session to explain basic principles of the ESRF to non-experts and one comprising two tutorials on data analysis and one practical on X-ray tomography.
