Caption: Byzantine wood preservation. Wooden planks being sprayed with water to preserve them following their excavation at the Yenikapi archaeological site, Istanbul, Turkey. This site was discovered in 2004 during excavations for the Marmaray rail tunnel under the Bosphorus. Excavations uncovered more than 30 boats preserved in the mud. The main discovery was the fourth-century Byzantine port from the time of the emperor Theodosius. The oldest finds were Neolithic remains from 8000 years ago. Photographed in 2009.
