State museum lecture to focus on shipwreck artifacts

Posted: February 28, 2013 - 1:05am

The Alaska Division of Libraries, Archives and Museums’ 2013 Andrew P. Kashevarof Memorial Lecture Series continues on Thursday with “Science and Ethics in the Care of Shipwreck Artifacts,” led by Museum Conservator Ellen Carrlee. Admission to the noon lecture is free; visitors are welcome to bring a lunch to eat during the presentation.

Carrlee will discuss what conservation treatments are performed on shipwreck artifacts, the ethics that guide those decisions, and how physics, chemistry and biology help the conservator determine the right choices when artifacts can start deteriorating the moment they come to the surface – or begin deteriorating in the museum years later.

The last two lectures of the series will be “Cosmology of the Tlingit Longhouse” on March 7 with Librarian Sorrel Goodwin of the Alaska State Library Historical Collections, and “Exploring the Archaeology of Alaska’s Colonial Russian Settlements” on March 14 with State Archaeologist Dave McMahan, of the Office of History and Archaeology.

For more information, call 465-2901.
