Archaeology
Italian term or phrase: aspiratore
It's my day for archaeology today... here's another one from a report on planned work to be carried out on restoring flooring mosaics. My doubt is whether it is correct to translate "aspiratori" as "aspirators" or "vacuum cleaners" (or other) in an archaeological context. The full phrase is: ""Rimozione dei depositi di polvere con pennellesse ed **aspiratori**". Thanks for your help.
