Tree-Ring Analysis of Timbers from 7-9 Stourport Road, Bewdley, Worcestershire

Author(s): Alison Arnold, Robert Howard, Cliff Litton

Core samples were obtained from 21 different oak timbers from within numbers 7 and 9 Stourport Road, Bewdley, all sampled timbers appearing to belong to the primary phase of construction. The analysis of these cores produced a single site chronology, BWDASQ01, comprising 16 samples, and having a combined overall length of 242 rings. This site chronology was dated as spanning the years AD 1060 to AD 1301. Interpretation of the sapwood would indicate that all the dated timbers were cut in a single phase of felling between AD 1302 and AD 1324.
