The BBC is reporting that a hunt for the oldest buildings in Wales has been narrowed own to a cow shed in Conwy which they believe may date back to the 14th century. They are using tree ring dating (dendrochronology) to check their findings. Here's a snippet: "The style and use of a cruck frame - a tree trunk used to support a roof - leads some specialists to think a building used as a cow shed and store near historic house Plas Tirion, in Llanrwst, Conwy, could pre-date Wales' oldest domestic houses such as Hafod-y-Garreg in the Wye Valley, which dates to 1402." ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Saturday posts are sponsored by Warwick Buildings , manufacturers of outstanding quality timber buildings.
