TREE-RING ANALYSIS OF TIMBERS FROM ST. GEORGE'S GUILDHALL, KING'S LYNN, NORFOLK

Author(s): Ian Tyers

Dendrochronological analysis of the rafters and ashlar pieces from the roof of St George's Guildhall, Kings Lynn, Norfolk, has shown that the main construction phase is early fifteenth century. Analysis of timbers from a possibly inserted floor suggests that these are either contemporary with the main construction phase, or are possibly from shortly afterwards. No useful results have been obtained from analysis of timbers from a presumed later roof truss.
