Abstract

Samples were taken from 15 oak timbers, representing various elements and potential phases within Purcombe Farmhouse. Three samples were unsuitable for analysis. The remaining 12 series were successfully cross-matched, producing a site chronology of 126 years dated as spanning the period AD 1379–1504. All 12 timbers, incorporating elements of the main frame, the roof, a floor joist, and partitions, appear to be coeval. Only one timber retained complete sapwood, this being a cross-beam associated with the stack, giving an actual felling date of winter AD 1504/05. The felling date ranges of the other dated samples suggest a similar likely felling date for the timbers represented.
