Art History Professors are often the primary source for evaluating and authenticating new artistic finds in the collection of art museums while conducting their usual art history classes in universities. They are adept in harnessing technical disciplines that analyze and date old artworks which often turn out to be valuable historic artifacts. Their work in the academe puts them in great company along with archeologist colleagues in advising museum and art gallery curators.
