Timber Analysis of the Warwick: Dating, Provenance and Resources

Author(s): Nigel Nayling

Year: 2013


The Warwick was extensively sampled for tree-ring analysis and species identification in the final field season in 2012, following promising results from analysis of a small number of samples taken in 2011. The results of dating and provenance analysis of the structural hull timbers will be presented and discussed in the context of contemporary North-Western European shipbuilding and forestry practice. Additional results from selective sampling of stave built containers (barrels) will also be discussed hinting at provisioning of the ship prior to departure for the New World.
