Methods for dendrochronolocial analyses

Wood as an object of investigation can appear in many different forms. On the one hand we often encounter wood more or less in it´s native form (for example in posts and roof beams). On the other hand throughout the centuries man has learned to artistically process and creatively use this important raw material (for example in music instruments and objects of art).
