Endre church, Gotland

Endre (Vol. I), church about 10 km east of Visby. One medieval piece of timber only has been found. It is a scaffolding pole in the eastern wall of the nave. It has a rectangular cross-section with curved corners which were perceived as the curvature of the trunk. Sample no 6 from that piece is dated 1276 at its outermost annual ring. It is most probable that less than 10 annual rings have disappeared from the original trunk. Thus the eastern wall of the nave has been erected within 10 years after 1276.
