CONSERVATION OF WATERLOGGED ARTIFACTS

METHODS OF CONSERVING ARCHAEOLOGICAL MATERIAL
FROM UNDERWATER SITES

This online Conservation Manual was first posted on the World Wide Web during the 1998 spring semester for use by the students enrolled in ANTH 605, Conservation of Cultural Resources, at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. These files constitute the laboratory manual that is used in conjunction with the course. The emphasis of the course is on the conservation of material from underwater sites, especially marine sites, but the conservation of material from terrestrial sites is also discussed. While this laboratory manual is posted for use by students enrolled in the ANTH 605 class, others may download and use the manual; proper credit, however, must be given -
