10-12 février 2010 - Tree rings, Art, Archaeology

Practiced in Belgium since the beginning of the 1980's, dendrochronology has been mainly used as a method of dating in the fields of archæology and history of art. The accumulation of dendrochronological data and the development of new tools of analysis in various Western European countries have enabled the exploration of new fields of investigation (origins of wood, forest ecology, history of climate...). New technical and typological information (wood cuts, joining, tool marks) has revealed cultural identities and evidence for the transfer and circulation of knowledge and materials.

This conference aims to present an update on the advances in dendrochronology in the fields of architecture, archæological excavation and works of art by encouraging international exchanges among dendrochronologists, historians, art historians and archæologists.
