This database is an index of tree-ring dates for 3291 structures as published in Vernacular Architecture up to Volume 44 (2013). It also includes 15 building dates obtained by high precision radiocarbon dating. Descriptions of the buildings as given in the lists are included in the database. However, these descriptions have not been edited, so any references they contain relate to the volume as printed. In particular, detailed studies of some of the buildings have been published as 'individual case studies'. These are referenced, but for further information, the relevant volume of Vernacular Architecture will need to be consulted. About 300 buildings which have been investigated for tree-ring dating, but for which no date was obtained are also listed. Dates that have been superseded by later work are also indicated.

This new article in Internet Archaeology revisits the archaeology of the Viking-age settlement and ring fortress at Aggersborg, Denmark, based on a large-scale geophysical survey using magnetic gradiometry and ground-penetrating radar, as well as legacy excavation data.

This new article in Internet Archaeology revisits the archaeology of the Viking-age settlement and ring fortress at Aggersborg, Denmark, based on a large-scale geophysical survey using magnetic gradiometry and ground-penetrating radar, as well as legacy excavation data. Late 10th-century Aggersborg, the largest known fortress in Viking-age Scandinavia, commanded a key position at the narrow strait of the Limfjord, a principal sailing route between the Baltic and the North Sea. Previous excavations established that this location was on the site of an earlier settlement, which was burned-down prior to the construction of the fortress. The character and extent of this prior activity, however, have hitherto remained ill-defined.
