Abstract

Samples were taken from two foundation beams supporting the bell-chamber floor and from 13 timbers in the bellframe itself. Neither of the foundation beams dated but 11 of the timbers from the bellframe were dated. Two site chronologies were formed which, although of similar date, may represent two slightly different felling events. The 138-year sequence comprises two timbers with a likely empirically derived combined felling date range of AD 1654–86 (95% confidence)or a Bayesian based combined felling date range of AD 1658–94 (95% probability). The 95-year sequence comprises nine timbers with a likely empirically derived combined felling date range of AD 1681–1712 (95% confidence)or a Bayesian based combined felling date range of AD 1687–96 (95% probability).
