Subject: Waterlogged wood

Waterlogged wood

From: Thanasis Velios <natuk>
Date: Wednesday, November 27, 1996
There is a waterlogged piece of wood from a shipwreck in the sea of
Crete. The density of the wood is d=0, 39 gr/ml and the relative
humidity is 166,55%. These numbers show that the wood is generally
in good condition. This piece of wood is also identified as oak. If
we don't use PEG for the dehydration and consolidation of the wood,
which other method would be best for this wood?
