Bremhill Court, Bremhill, Wiltshire: Tree-Ring Analysis of Timbers

Author(s): Matt Hurford, Robert Howard, Cathy Tyers

Dendrochronological analysis was undertaken on 11 of the 12 timbers sampled in the medieval core of Bremhill Court. This resulted in the production of a single site chronology, BHBCSQ01. This comprises series from seven timbers and can be dated as spanning the years AD 1111–1323. The results identified that the dated timbers used in the construction of the original medieval hall house are of fourteenth-century date and may represent a single programme of felling in the mid-AD 1320s.
