Last spring we sistematically documented the historical roof of Sepsi-seat (Covasna county, RO). Thanks to the dendrochronological sampling and dating more roofs, towers and wood towers were dated, which in several cases are the most important data regardin the building periods. The oldest roof of the region stays above the chancel of the Calvinist church of Bodoc, which was erected in 1525.  The new data can be used both for historical research and also for restoration plans in the future.

  

 

The dendrochronological research of the wood bell towers in Câmpia Transilvaniei is running these days. These constructions are deeply efected by degradation, therefore their documentation is highly indicated. More of them have been dated for the first time right now. The oldest such tower is the one in Filpișu Mare, built in the early 17th century.
