Exploring the science of dendrochronology


Delighted to have co-authored this new learning resource on Dendrochronology, recently published by Forestry and Land Scotland, and developed as part of Dendrochronicle’s ‘SESOD’ research programme. It serves as an accessible introduction to the archaeological science of tree-ring dating, using real Scottish archaeology case studies, and with fun activities for use in and out of school. The creative vision by Matt Ritchie (FLS archaeologist) shines through, the illustrations he commissioned are wonderful. My co-authors Marcia Cook and Jennifer Thoms did a great job on the activities and case studies respectively. Truly a team effort, with support from FLS, Archaeology Scotland, HES and of course Dendrochronicle.

The resource is free to download from here:
