St Anne's Chapel, Paternoster Row, Barnstaple, Devon: Tree-Ring Analysis of Oak Timbers from the Roof and Crypt

Author(s): Dr Martin Bridge

Six samples from timbers from both the roof and the crypt were dated and appear likely to be coeval. None retained complete sapwood, but a combined likely felling date range of AD 1317–43 was derived for these timbers, supporting the expected early fourteenthcentury date for the wagon roof and the spine beam structure in the crypt.
