Pub. Date: 03/28/2003
Publisher: Texas A&M University Press
The excavation of the La Belle shipwreck off the coast of Texas in the 1990s led to the development of new techniques in archaeological chemistry to aid the treatment and long-term preservation of water-logged material from the site. This study provides a step-by-step guide to the practical applications for organic artefact stabilisation and includes sections on wood, leather, cordage and textiles, glass, ivory and bone.
