Project: Ecology and exploitation of the Holocene forest. Optimization of dendrochronology as dating technique and source of archaeological information in Flanders. (Acronym: dendroforarchaeology)

project duration
01-JAN-05 – 31-OCT-07
abstract
Dendrochronology is seldom implemented in archaeological research in Flanders. Optimization of this dating technique will deliver additional information on evolution and ecology of the Flemish forests during the Holocene. Growth-ring patterns of archaeological and modern wood specimens will be measured and compared. Besides this, the relevance of other wood-anatomical parameters to build sensitive time-series will be assessed.
