Resumé

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) was
investigated to clarify the applicability of the
method for assessing the condition of archaeological
textiles from waterlogged environments.
A description and evaluation of the TEM protocol
is presented and the method was tested on
new and artificially soil-aged wool, as well as
on archaeological samples. TEM can give more
information on the ultrastructure of the wool
cortex than other microscopic techniques. It is
the only method that can give precise information
on the amount, size, shape, and condition
of natural pigment granules. TEM analyses were
also used to investigate the presence of natural
pigments in the yarns.
