Professor Harold Livermore's lucid identifition of the principal figures depicted on the famous Panels painted by Nuno Gonçalves was published in the 34th Annual Report, 2007. Since then there have been some important scientific developments.
In 2003 dendrochronological tests on the wood of the Panels were conducted by the University of Hamburg and established that the trees were cut no later that 1440. Allowing for the timber to season, the Panels would therefore have been painted between 1442 and 1448.
