Archaeological excavations and archaeologically monitored construction sites constantly unearth wooden constructions and artifacts from the past. Without quick and professional documentation these structures run the risk of loss due to rapid degradation. DendroArchaeology is specialized on the scientific evaluation of archaeologically excavated wooden objects, combining state-of-the-art methods to an interdisciplinary research approach. In doing so, we secure important information, otherwise lost, and provide comprehensive and up-to-date results for archaeological and paleoenvironmental research. We offer extensive experience to support your handling of archaeological wood between excavation and restoration treatment.
