The Stonehouse, Moorhouse, Near Carlisle, Cumbria : Tree-Ring Analysis of Timbers from the Barn

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

A total of eleven samples was obtained from the timbers within two elements of this barn at Moorhouse, near Carlisle; the two cruck trusses to the east end and the principal-rafter truss to the west end. Of the eleven samples obtained, nine were measured. From this data a single site chronology comprising two samples with a combined overall length of 88 rings could be formed. Despite being compared to an extensive collection of reference chronologies neither this site chronology, nor the seven remaining measured but ungrouped samples, could be dated.
