Half-timbered construction at Dinan (Côte-d'Armor) France
Archaeological sites and historic buildings potentially contain large amounts of original timber, which can be analysed using dendrochronological techniques for dating and also to provide many other kinds of information.

By methodically analysing such attributes as anatomical characteristics, structural joins, dimensional aspects, and surface characteristics, it is possible to reconstitute the entire process of wood conversion, from the felling of trees to their final placement as structural elements within a building. 

Additionally, relevant information can be provided about the wood supply chains, forest management practises and the organisation of historic woodworking industries (publications).
