A technical paper commissioned in collaboration with AOC Archaeology providing information on a collection of painted ceilings from 16th and 17th century properties. This paper combines art history, timber provenance and dendrochronology to provide an invaluable resource adding to our knowledge of painted ceilings and the evolution of painting styles in a wider European context.

Timbers from five buildings in Historic Environment Scotland's care were studied, along with timber from a further two properties.
