Robert Howard from the Nottingham Tree Ring Dating Lab carried out dendro survey at 64-72 Goodramgate (Lady Row) 99-103 Micklegate and All Saints Cottages North Street. Dendrochronological analysis was undertaken on samples taken from timbers of the roof and north truss of number 64. This resulted in the construction of two site sequences. Site sequence YRKKSQ01 contains nine samples and spans the period 1079-1316. The second site sequence, YRKKSQ02, contains two samples and spans the period 1239-1315. Analysis of the sapwood indicates felling of timbers in 1311, 1315, and 1316, with the rest of the dated beams also likely to have been felled during the same period. Prior to tree-ring analysis being undertaken the building had been dated stylistically to the early-fourteenth century. Further, it was thought to be the range for which a deed had been granted for its construction in 1316; a supposition now supported by these results See EYO7350 for North St.
