Nueva tecnología aplicada a la restauración y estudio de una escultura arqueológica de madera

by Alejandra Alonso Olvera and Khoi Tran

Conservation and restoration tasks, as well as studies carried out on the archaeological wooden sculpture found during excavation of Structure IX at Becán archaeological zone in Campeche are described in this volume. An agreement for the conservation and restoration was established and included INAH (Mexico), Arc-Nucléart (France), Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares (Mexico), and Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolas de Hidalgo (Mexico). Khoi Tran (Arc-Nucléart)'s contribution in terms of scientific techniques allowed to apply, for the first time in Mexico, the consolidation method with gamma radiation technology. This practical experience, as well as the information gathered, constitutes an important precedent and contributes to the development of conservation efforts of archaeological organic materials. In Spanish.
