Archaeological wood

The National Heritage Board in Stockholm has recently initiated a
project to investigate and assess the extent and condition of
archaeological wood in Sweden treated with the alum/glycerole
method. The further aim is to gain knowledge of the variations in
methods used, both with respect to the initial treatment and to
subsequent attempts at stabilization or re-conservation, in order to
adopt suitable procedures for the care and treatment of these

A number of institutions have tackled and are tackling these
problems. We are very interested in hearing what sort of experiences
others have had with this type of material; its grade and type of
deterioration; analyses made; active and/or preventive
re-conservation measurements; results. Any other information or
comments on the subject are also very welcome.
