TREE-RING ANALYSIS OF TIMBERS FROM ODDA'S CHAPEL, DEERHURST, GLOUCESTERSHIRE

Author(s): Dr Martin Bridge

The timber-framed extension over the partially demolished chancel of this Anglo-Saxon chapel was investigated. The floor was found to be made from elm, except one oak beam at the west end of the chancel, felled in the spring of AD 1591. This timber crossmatched best with site chronologies from the east of England. The oak timbers from the decorative wall-framing formed a site chronology which dated against more local chronologies, with the individual timbers being felled in AD 1593 and during the winter of AD 1593/4.
