CTinHS – 06 | Dendrochronology: Tree Rings, Art, Archaeology

On March 28th, 2024, will be held the 6th Current Topics in Heritage Science on the Zoom platform.

We’ll meet the researchers Pascale Fraiture, Head of the Dendrochronology Laboratory at the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage in Brussels (KIK-IRPA) since 2003, and Vincent Labbas, PhD, currently engaged full-time in the FED-tWIN projectDeep in Heritage”  for the dendroarchaeology research. 

The 6th Lecture is an opportunity to learn more about Dendrochronology, the science that studies the annual growth rings of trees. The discipline is currently widely used to date old wood and is also essential for environmental and climatological research.

But what is the link between Cultural Heritage and Dendrochronology? With Pascale Fraiture and Vincent Labbas, we’ll examine how it might be used practically concerning cultural heritage, with special attention to date, precision, and dependability. It represents a challenge in dendro-archaeological research to understand the socio-ecosystems of the past, too.  

The online event is broken down into:

  • 30-minute presentation
  • 15-minute interactive question (Q&A) 

Current Topics in Heritage Science series are organised by emerging professionals of HS Academy, a collaborative initiative between IPERION HS and E-RIHS.

Registration: To participate, please register on the IPERION HS FORM.

A mail will be sent to you before the start with the link to follow the meeting.
