Our work depends upon the availability of wood samples which we use to build isotopic reference chronologies and reconstruct the climate of the past.
If you have old oak trees growing on your land, work with old timbers in dendrochronology or building restoration, or perhaps farm an area where bog-oak is regularly recovered, we would be interested to hear from you.
Sometimes old trees die or old buildings become derelict. If you have fallen trees or building timbers you think may be useful, please contact us. It is possible that we may be able to use this old material to develop our chronologies, to date the timbers and to learn about past environments.
We regularly conduct public outreach activities and offer talks on our work to schools and local archaeology groups. Contact us if you require more information.
