Description

NMR: Analysis by dendrochronology of timbers to the western end of the north aisle roof of All Saints Church, York, shows that a number of these were cut as part of a single episode of felling at some point between 1166 at the earliest and 1191 at the latest. It is possible that these timbers represent the remains of a roof to an aisle believed to have been added to an already existing, earlier, church in the later-twelfth century as the population on this bank of the river Ouse grew. A further timber from the north aisle roof has an estimated felling date in the period 1477-1502. This timber may be part of works undertaken at this time with the repair or completion of the roofs and ceilings to the aisles and chancel. A final sample has an estimated felling date in the period 1675-1700 and may represent a phase of repair or renovation of the north aisle roof. Four further samples remain ungrouped and undated.
