Abstract

Dendrochronological analysis was undertaken on 16 samples from the barn at Manor Farm. This resulted in the production of two site sequences, KDMBSQ01 and KDMBSQ02. The former comprises eight samples with an overall length of 150 rings and the latter two samples with an overall length of 81 rings. Site sequence KDMBSQ01 is dated as spanning the years AD 1260–1409. Site sequence KDMBSQ02 is undated. A single sample, KDM-B09, with an overall length of 113 rings is dated as spanning the years AD 1371–1483. Five samples remain ungrouped and undated. The results indicate that the timbers used in the primary construction of the barn were probably all felled in the last few years of the first decade of the fifteenth century. A single dated arcade post from the southernmost truss indicates that the building underwent repairs or modifications just under a century later, in the last few years of the fifteenth century or, the first few years of the sixteenth century.
