Acrónimo: INVISIBLE WOODS
Título: Dendrocronologia das madeiras estruturais de edifícios dos centros históricos de cidades de Portugal
Área Científica: Ciências Sociais e Humanidades
Síntese do Projeto: In line with the recommendation actions of the expert Group on Cultural Heritage, this project proposal will improve the knowledge of a very important raw material used in most of the historical buildings and with a fundamental structural role: wood. Structural wood can be simply viewed from an engineering perspective, with an evaluation of their conservation status and decision of restoration. However, wood hide important information on the history of the building. Besides the description of the type of timber-framed, that can change with time and geographic region, it is possible to date the wood based on dendrochronological techniques, and increase the information of the phases of construction and restoration; through the identification of the tree species used it is also possible to know if it was local or imported wood, improving our knowledge on wood trade history. Additionally, by collecting and dating older wood, and if the wood is of local origin, it is possible to extend the length of the dendrochronological database of Portugal, with a strong interest of climatologist that use this information to reconstruct past climatic conditions. Thus, this project proposal has a strong interdisciplinary link, with the technological approach of the civil engineers.
