Abstract

This article presents a brief overview of the role synchrotron-based X-ray techniques are playing in the preservation of the Mary Rose, a 16th century English warship. The particular problem facing the conservators is the effects of sulfuric acid in the wood formed from sulfur compounds which originate from microbial activity.
