TREE-RING ANALYSIS OF TIMBERS FROM ST JOHN'S COMMANDERY, SWINGFIELD, KENT

Author(s): Robert Howard, R R Laxton, Cliff Litton

Dendrochronological analysis of samples from fourteen oak timbers of the roof of St John's Commandery at Swingfield, Kent, resulted in the production of a site chronology consisting of nine of these samples. This site chronology was dated as spanning the period AD 1312 - 1382 and as giving an estimated felling date in the range AD 1395 - 1405. It thus appears that the present roof is a replacement of an original or earlier one.
