Workshop : What can we learn from ancient woods?

5th July 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In the past wood was used in almost every aspect of life, for building, fuel, tools and utensils. Wood only survives on archaeological sites if it is carbonised or waterlogged, such as on crannogs. Analysis of the wood can tell us how old an archaeological site is, as well as revealing a great deal about life in the past. Come along and find out how to count tree rings, identify wood to species, and lots more.

Led by archaeologist Anne Crone of AOC Archaeology Group, at the Whithorn Trust Visitor Centre
