Modern tree-ring research frequently operates at the interface of archaeology, ecology and climatology, routinely including quantitative elements of wood anatomy, and ideally also crosses disciplinary boundaries by shifting geographical, methodological and even conceptual frontiers. Although highly subjective and explorative, this talk will be structured into five partly interrelated forefront items: i) after crossdating, ii) beyond forests, iii) towards history, iv) below surface, and v) inside rings.
