This resource provides the tree-ring dates for over 3600 buildings in the United Kingdom, ranging from cathedrals to cottages and barns. The database holds period, location and reference information for each record. It also includes a few buildings that have been dated by high precision radiocarbon dating, and the names of buildings for which dating was attempted but not successful.
The database is compiled and maintained by the Vernacular Architecture Group and is based on the lists published annually in the journal Vernacular Architecture.
