Subject: Course on conservation of waterlogged archaeological materials

Course on conservation of waterlogged archaeological materials

From: Istvan Kecskemeti <istvan.kecskemeti>
Date: Wednesday, February 6, 2002
    An 80 credit (120 ECTS) diploma course is being offered in
    Waterlogged Archaeological Conservation at the Conservation
    Department of EVTEK Institute of Art and Design, Vantaa,
    Finland, starting September 2002 and finishing on March 2004.
    More information will  be found at

    The topics are roughly the same as for the Marine Archaeological
    Conservation Course (2000-2002), but this new course has been
    reorganised to offer more practical work. Students will be given
    several artefacts to conserve as soon as in September 2002.
    Initiation to dendrochronology and conservation of bone will be
    new additions to this programme which enlarges the subject to
    the conservation of all waterlogged materials.

    Even if the course is more dedicated to trained conservators,
    students in conservation or archaeologists interested in
    conservation, we will consider too applicants having a
    scientific background and deeply interested in conservation.
