anything that can be done about a role of film (b&w)
which got double exposed.

we had the misfortune of taking pictures on a second role of b&w from
our Mexico vacation - Myan ruins, which turned out had been
previously been used.

so we have pictures ontop of pictures.

someone in the family used our role of film,
took it out and never mentioned anything ...

we ended up loading the film and snapping shoots on it as well.

anything that could be done to correcet that and would it be expensive ?

just a wild guess but im guess that the part of the film that is exposed (the white and light areas) are overlapping and probably would be next to impossible to undo... :-\

wheres GIA? he would probably know...

it's two images on one photo,
on the entire set and we'd like to be able to have it fixed if possible.

Well I took a Black and White photography class in college and when we would go and develop the film there is really not much you can do once light has been exposed to it as far as I know. My class was definetely beginner, and nothing advanced, but from my understanding once you expose more light to that film there is no going back. The best you could do is probably some how filter out the images, but I really think that would be near impossible since its basically now two images blended together.

I'm sure it can be done, but I believe it's difficult and expensive. I know
it's not something any normal place can do.

sorry to butt in like this but... I am a photographer....Sorry but here is nothing you can do once the film has been double exposed. I guess if it's not to bad you could Photoshop the photos...but you have to think if the hours for retouching is going to be worth it!

yes, already gave up on the idea.
unfortuantly they were important pics from the Myan Ruins in Mexico.

too bad ...
