Priests’ Room & Annex, Church of St Mary, North Bar Within, Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire: Radiocarbon wiggle-matching of oak timbers

Author(s): Alison Arnold, Robert Howard, Cathy Tyers, Michael Dee, Sanne Palstra, Peter Marshall

Independent validation of tentative tree-ring dating for a previously undated site chronology, BEVFSQ04, from the Church of St Mary, Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire, has been obtained by radiocarbon wiggle-matching and it can now be considered as a radiocarbon-supported dendrochronological date, that spans AD 1608–1731DR. Radiocarbon wiggle matching for a second undated site, BEVFSQ02, however, does not allow confirmation of the date suggested by the ring-width dendrochronology. Scientific dating evidence for the dated timbers from the Annex and Priests’ Rooms illustrates the complex structural history of these two components of the Church of St Mary.
