Exciting clues about Stratford’s history revealed as carbon dating project drills deeper into old buildings

AN intriguing time capsule of Stratford’s past is emerging as a four-year carbon dating project of buildings begins to reveal the town’s hidden history.

Several well-known buildings in Stratford are under investigation as part of The Stratfire Project which uses tree ring dating – dendrochronology – to examine timber-framed buildings that were rebuilt following fires in 1594, 1595 and 1614.
