I was recently discussing local bronze and iron age sites with a local
archaeologist, in particular their survival in different conditions
(mainly bogs). I habitually wear a titanium bracelet (my own smithing)
and this set us talking about Ti's survivability over these timescales.
How might you expect Ti to survive in a peat bog, or a burial mound,
over a period of a few thousand years ? What sort of corrosion would
happen to it ? What conditions would preserve it, or damage it?
