Abstract :
In 1993 the North East Vernacular Architecture Group proposed a dendrochronology project in collaboration with the Nottingham University Tree-Ring Dating Laboratory. The subject of the study was a group of buildings related to the medieval religious estates in and around the City of Durham. Survey and tree-ring dating work was carried out and the results have proven that a small but significant group of medieval agricultural buildings survives at Durham. Considers the evidence of the building fabric which gave rise to the investigation, followed by an examination of the dating results. A discussion of the results follows in which new directions for future researches are also outlined. The individual buildings are described in detail in an appendix. ;
