"On September 23, our delegation returned from an official trip to Grenoble. The main thing is that the Grenoble laboratory is ready to help us and share experience and technology. We have repeatedly heard from various experts that there are no wood preservation technologies in Ukraine and in the whole world, but we found the specialists. The laboratory staff introduced our delegation to all existing technologies of preservation of archaeological wood, showed all the stages of this complicated process, including one with the use of radiation. They are not only ready to share the technologies, but also to take our specialists for training," Mondryivsky said.

Mondryivsky added that the ARC Nucle Art laboratory staff would visit Kyiv and the site of excavations on Poshtova Square and study plans to create the Center for the Preservation of Archaeological Objects.
