Investigating Tree Archaeology

BOOKING NOW OPEN (Early Bird Discount package available until 31 March 2018)
SYBRG (UKeconet) & partners are organising a 2-day conference on the theme of ‘Tree Archaeology’ looking at the archaeology and heritage at the core of understanding treescapes. This multi-disciplinary event will link the managed woodland or individual tree to their processing and utilisation in historic buildings, other structures and processes. The event will bring together veteran tree specialists, dendrochronologists, archaeologists, vernacular building architects and technologists, ecologists and woodland historians to discuss the history and technology of woodland management, processes and products. It will look at the various aspects of tree and woodland archaeology which extends from the hedgerow/ wood-pasture/ wood [process] to final destination [product] and how these have changed over centuries.
We will consider issues around the legacy of veteran trees and the evidence of past management and technologies that exist in the transformed products, some of which are still found today. This event will focus mostly on the UK experience.
The first day (16th May) starts mid-morning with presentations through the day. This will be followed by an early evening visit to two nearby sites: Gleadless Valley woodlands and Bishop’s House Museum linking historic woodland processes and management with products (a Tudor timber-framed house). The following day will be a mixture of plenary and parallel sessions with poster presentations and displays.
Speakers include: Keith Alexander, Suzi Richer, Rob Jarman, Cathy Tyers, Chris Dobbs, Della Hooke, Ted Green, Ian Rotherham, Stuart Wrathmell, Joe Thompson and Coralie Mills.
