CAROLINA GOLD
Reclaiming Submerged 19th Century Timbers

Highland Woodworking has posted a 10-minute powerpoint video show about recovery of logs from wetlands in South Carolina. It's got many historical photos and shows a few of the techniques for recovering the logs. Lots of pretty pictures of furniture, but nary a word about tree rings. - Patrick Pringle

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
