Subject: Waterlogged wood

Waterlogged wood

From: Haralambos Zachariou <harryz>

I am a conservator interested in the use of resins as a method of
treating waterlogged archaeological wood. We have recently
discovered a number of pieces of such material in a Neolithic
lakeside site in Greece and I have been considering the option of
"plastification" on a number of them.  I would therefore appreciate
it if you would share any information you might have on the subject,
concerning the use and application of resins and their reaction
after long periods of time or beyond controlled environments.  I
would also be interested to know about Laboratories/Institutions
specialising in such method and possible collaboration.
