Dendrochronolgy - Dating Timber Frames

speaker

Dr Andy Moir

26 February 2013


7:30pm at St John's Parish Room



The dating of buildings by counting tree rings may sound a little far fetched - but there is sound science behind it - as our speaker will explain. He has also used the results of such dating to determine the periods when various construction methods or features were in use, making it possible to date a timber frame building far more accurately than in the past - without counting a single ring.
