Buildings which have been Tree-ring dated by this project

(Dendrochronology is for the most part by Tree-Ring Services, from whom detailed reports on each building can be obtained.)

The dates shown are felling dates for the timbers in the first phase of the building.
Sometimes only a range of possible dates can be given.
Construction dates would normally be soon after the Timber Felling date.
