Dendrochronology Fulltofta church

We have done a lot of interesting dendrochronology after thoroughly building archaeology examination and craft reasarch. THe primary investigations has been done by me and antiquarian Petter Jansson at Regionmuseet. The dendro sampling has been done in collaboration with Hans Linderson University of Lund For example we have done thoroughly examination of Fulltofta churchs chancel and a wooden window frame and been able to conclude that the timber was felled in the period 1139-1153. The overlintel of the window frame have 399 remaining yearrings. Hans Linderson could conclude that the tree when felled had 510-550 yearrings and that it started to grov late in the 6th century or early in the 7th century!

More churches has been analysed and more samplings are planned.
