TREE-RING ANALYSIS OF BARREL TIMBERS FROM UPWICH, DROITWICH, HEREFORD AND WORCESTER, 1983-84.

Author(s): J Hillam

The analysis of the structural timbers from Upwich have been reported elsewhere (Groves 1988). This report describes the analysis and dating of oak timbers from the remains of six barrels. Five of the barrels were dated, although precise felling dates were not obtained because none of the timbers had sapwood. A timber from one of the barrels was probably felled in the 13th century, but the remainder were probalbly 17th century in date.
