DENDROCHRONOLOGY IN THE NORTHEAST:

A RESEARCH TOOL COMES OF AGE.

A Symposium at Historic Deerfield, Deerfield, Massachusetts,
co-sponsored by Historic New England.
Thursday, May 19 and Friday, May 20, 2005

Scientists and scholars of various disciplines will gather to report on recent advances in dendrochronology, or tree-ring dating studies, in the Northeast and the development of master chronologies for various species of trees. Speakers' topics will include the composition of the region's historical forests, the history of dendrochronology studies in the Northeast, cultural impacts of historical climate variation, explanations of methodology, regional case studies, and how dating results are helping to elucidate the region's architectural and cultural history. Through the presentations of this symposium it will become clear that the science of dendrochronology has moved into the mainstream of analytical tools available for architectural research. The program will be of interest to dendrochronologists, architectural and cultural historians, archeologists, preservationists, restoration specialists, homeowners, and all those interested in the accurate interpretation of New England's buildings and the history they reflect.

Speakers:

Edward Cook, Paul Krusic, William Wright - Lamont-Doherty Tree-Ring Laboratory

Daniel Miles, Michael Worthington - Oxford Dendrochronology Laboratory

David Stahle - University of Arkansas, Geoscience Department

Charles Cogbill - Independent Forest Ecologist

Chris Baisan - University of Arizona Tree-Ring Laboratory

Anne Grady - Independent Architectural Historian

William Flynt - Architectural Conservator, Historic Deerfield, Inc.
