Summary:
Waterlogged wooden artifacts and ecofacts recovered at this unique Archaic site present researchers with a challenge to meet specific conservation needs. This thesis sought to address these needs through research and redundant experimentation. In over twenty experiments, commonly practiced conservation techniques were tested in an attempt to discover an easily replicable conservation method that best fit these objects. Additionally, a brand new method of waterlogged wood conservation, recently developed in Japan and employing hydrolyzed feather keratin, was tested for use on artifacts from Little Salt Spring.
