After four years of doctoral research on the topic of iron in the roof framing, a detailed typologic timeline could be established. It covers the period between the thirteenth and eighteenth century. The development of such an inventory was possible by the development of an interdisciplinary methodology combining dendrochronology, archaeometallurgy and techniques of building archeology. Reflections and comparisons crossed with nearly 750 armatures from the investigation of 68 roof or attic parts, mainly located in Wallonia, helped to inventory 89 differents frames iron models.

Situé dans le Hainaut, dominant le vallon de la Senette, le château-fort d’Écaussinnes a fait l’objet de diverses monographies. Pourtant, bien des études du bâti restent à faire, dans la foulée de la plus récente que l’on doit à Philippe Sosnowska. En mars 2012, une étude typologique et dendrochronologique des charpentes, à l’occasion de travaux de restauration aux toitures, apporte quelques éléments nouveaux. L’analyse porte sur les charpentes de toiture de la chapelle et des ailes ouest et nord. Elle a été demandée par les architectes Paul Delaisse et Michel Micciche dans le cadre de la restauration des toitures. [less ▲]

The development of a comparative approach between the evaluation of the quantity of timber used in a roof frame and the volume of wood present in this same attic allows the acquisition of information about the economical, technical and social contexts in which a timber frame was drawn up. By carrying out this kind of comparison in a systematic way in twenty-tree religious mosan buildings (Belgium and Netherlands), it’s possible to trace, step by step, thanks to dendrochronologic dating of the attics since 12th until 18thcentury, the causes and consequences which influence the methods of constructions of the carpenters. In parallel, the confrontation of this result with the volumes of iron used in the attics reveals the growing importance of this material in function of the time and of the architectural principles. This part of the study was enriched by archeometallurgic analyses intended to identify the process of reduction employed to produce this metal with the aim to measure the possible influence of iron process innovations on the use of iron in the medieval and modern frames, knowing that Wallonia knew from the end of the Middle Ages the early development of the indirect iron process instead of the direct iron process.

The development of a new comparative approach establishing a link between the evaluation of the quantity of barks used in a roof frame and the volume of wood present in this same attic allows the acquisition of essential information for the apprehension of the economical, the technical and the social contexts in which a timber frame was drawn up. By carrying out this kind of comparison in a systematic way in about thirty attics of religious buildings dispersed in the Walloon region (Belgium), the evolution of these contexts develops step by step since 12th until 18thcentury and highlights phenomena which influence the methods of constructions of the carpenters, like the appearance of the saw or the rarefaction of the forest resources. The confrontation of this result with the evolution of the volume of iron considered in the attics reveals the catch of importance of this material in function of the time and of the architectural principles. Iron appears in the roof frames of our areas in the same time that the advent of the Gothic architecture in link with the increase of the roof’s dimensions. Its employment generalizes then knows a real expansion at the 17th century because of the rarefaction of the forest resources but also because the preindustrial techniques allow it. [less ▲]

Studies about metallic reinforcements in historical monuments multiply themselves. Thanks to building archaeology and dendrochronology, we are able to determine the archaeological contexts to which the metallic elements belong and to date them. One of the objectives of the research is to list the different appearances of iron in roof frames and to identify the function of each. At the end, the principal aim is to create a typo-chronological inventory which will index all the iron reinforcements met in medieval roof frames of the Meuse basin (Belgium). [less ▲]
