Wet Organic Archaeological Materials

The Working Group Wet Organic Archaeological Materials (WOAM) is concerned with the degradation and conservation of organic archaeological objects found in fresh or salt water, or during excavation of wetland or damp sites. The group is also working with in-situ conservation, reburial, and site surveys, as well as post-conservation treatments of objects of organic archaeological materials.
