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
- 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.
